Brighten the evenings and let your light shine with these lovely taper candles. Women in a craft studio in Bredasdorp, South Africa, paint each one entirely by hand. As you light them in the company of family and friends, know that you are part of a shared wish for peace and safety, creativity and community, across the ocean and around the world.
Any variations in pattern and color reflect the hand-painted process.
Candles drip some so must have a drip catcher edge to prevent damaging your tablecloth. The wicks come a bit short and burnt out, needing a bit of work to relight. Keeping the paint away from the wick and/or leaving wax on the wick during production will probably heip.
I am very pleased with the hand-painted candles from Petalura. They are so unusual, creative and crafted with care. I know I will be buying more in different patterns. I love that it is supporting A worthy cause as well.
Petalura is to be commended for its excellent and courteous customer service.
The red, gold, and white tapers look fantastic on my dining room table. I am very pleased !!
