These Artisan-Made Candles Are Absolutely Breathtaking

This form of candle making is an old tradition in German folk art. These gorgeous candles are all made by hand. A wax core is dipped repeatedly into colour wax and cooled to create a coloured layering effect. Achieving the right consistency is key as the candles become warmer and warmer as they are dipped in the wax to create the layers. Once the laying is complete, the drippings are cut off and made into a smaller candle, while the large candle cools until it is ready to be carved. The candle must be carved within 15 minutes, and the artists who create these candles have extensive sculpting training. Once the candle is completed, it emits a beautiful glow through the intricate carvings that decorate it.
