I have reused unscented wax and recreated it into these candles!
For every Zigzag Torso I sell, I donate to the mental health charity, SAMH. Feel free to watch this video interview here.
The cats - 75mm x 82mm
The skulls - 75mm tall x 100mm x 65mm.
Female Torso - 12.5cm (this can vary slightly)
Pregnant Lady Torso - 10cm
Male Torso - 10cm
These are rough guides.
For candle care on how to prolong your candle life if a slit forms, feel free to watch this video here :)
Recycled Wax Candles
Each of these cats can burn up to 11.5 hours whereas the skulls can burn for up to 15 hours.
If you find a slit has formed where the wax pours out, this will burn through your candle faster. It looks great and rather spooky, but if you'd rather have the candle for longer, extinguish the candle and use the soft molten wax to cover slit. Wait until wax has solidified before burning again.
As soy wax burns at a lower temperature than regular paraffin wax, it should be okay to handle. However, if you have extra sensitive skin, wait a few moments for wax to cool.
Always burn upright and secure in or on a heat resistant container – hot wax may drip. Candles with a diameter of over 5cm / 2 inches should be burned on a spiked holder or flat dish. Allow wax to solidify before relighting. Ensure candles are positioned securely in an upright position. Extinguish candle before flame reaches within 2cm /1 inch of the holder. Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
