These T-lite candles have been specially decorated for Diwali, the festival of lights. These are very popular candles and there are no messy wax drippings.The empty T-lites can be refilled with wax and used again since they are made of aluminium.
T-Lites make excellent table decorations and also look good with Rangoli .

A few days back I made these assorted candles in various shades and shapes . Some are really large like the yellow pillar and red square one. They can be used as decorative pieces or for a romantic , festive evening.
Small candles called T Lites are used to extend the life of large candles. Just let the large candle burn for an hour , a small hollow will form, snuff out the candle.Let the wax set and place a t-lite candle in the hollow.
The T lite can be replaced as many times as desired while the large candle remains the same.

This rose pillar candle has been made in a silicone mold which I bought recently . I had been admiring these candles on the net and wondered if they were carved or made in a mold.
I made a red candle in the silicone mold but found it a bit plain , a little bit of gold brings out the fine rose carving to perfection making it look like banarasi silk zariwork!

I made this antique candle with a leaf design and was quite happy with it. Making designer candles is fun because we can design candles according to our wishes and not keep churning out the same design year after year.
A few basic moulds are enough to start a very fulfilling creative journey , no need to buy expensive moulds at all.
