Each candle takes 30-50 dips to reach desired size. Hand dipped candles have a longer burn than a taper candle made from a mold because of the many layers the flame has to burn through. I dip dyed these candles into wax I dyed with beet root powder to make this gorgeous pink color. I made some ombre and others colorblocked. The candles burn approximately 1'' per hour given that they burn in optimal conditions. Free from drafts and trimmed wick. They smell of sweet honey and are around 8'' tall.
