Incorrect temperature of melted paraffin, cooling water, or even the environment will lead to failure to successfully complete the carving.• The last stage is to cover the candle by acrylic lacquer to make it shiny and give it a layer of protection from heat, dust, and water.• If your candle gets covered in dust, you can wash it with water.• If you don’t want to burn this candle, you can place a tea light on top of this candle, and light it up instead of the wick.HANDMADE ART - Each candle is exclusively my handmade art. No machines are involved in this masterpiece, therefore each candle is unique and slightly different. Candles may also slightly differ in material density, size, weight, form, and colors. It is also important to notice that colors in photos and on computer/tablet/notebook/smartphone displays are always slightly different from reality.Therefore please understand that what you see on your display is an excellent indication of the product, but might be slightly different in reality.REFUND OR EXCHANGE – As mentioned above, all my candles are very neatly packed to ensure safe delivery to you. However, if the candle arrives damaged, please take a photo of the damaged box with the candle and send it to me on its arrival day. I will either offer you an exchange or a refund.CAUTION - Please carefully follow these instructions:• Never leave a lit candle unattended.• Prior to lighting the candle its wick must be cut to the length of 1/4 inch.• Pieces of neither matches nor any other objects should be left near molten paraffin.• Keep away from children and pets.• Do not place in the wind, direct sunlight, close to a direct heat source, or next to flammable materials.• Place candles on a stable and nonflammable tray which prevents paraffin leakage.• Place the candle with the tray on a nonflammable surface.• Do not touch and/or move the candle while it is lit or hot.• Packaging and labels must be removed before lighting the candle.• On candles with more than one wick all wicks must be lit at once.
