We make 2 styles or Early American Style, hand-dipped (in natural beeswax scent) with the wicks connected and molded hexagonal style (in Cinnamon & Bayberry scent).
Hand-dipped tapers are available in 6.5 inch, 9.5 inch & 12 inch lengths. The 6.5 inch tapers are slightly less than 3/4 inch and the 9.5 & 12 inch tapers are closer to 7/8 inch in diameter. The sizes vary slightly since they are hand made. Even the tapers in the same batch varies (we do loads of 30 pair at a time).
The dipped tapers are still joined together with their wicks connected since they are hand dipped. (The poured/hexagonal tapers do not have wicks connected)
These candles are not sold on other sites.
Each pair is packaged in a plastic bag with a copy of our Candle Information Card included with each one.
Beeswax hand-dipped candles are started by stringing a special frame with candle wicking. Each frame starts by holding 6 pairs of candles. The frames are dipped into 175 degrees beeswax, cooled, and then the procedure is repeated.
After the candle is about 1/2 size, the frame is split apart into two frames. The dipping procedure is continued until the candle is finished. Each pair of candles are hand made and the size may differ slightly from others. Click here for a tutorial showing how we make these beeswax tapers....
