- How big are the luminaries?
Magickal Light Candle Magick Luminaries are 4 inches tall, and 3 1/2 inches across.
This is large for a votive holder, but with a stunning effect. For size comparsion pictures please see About Our Luminaries.
- Are they safe?
With all candle products, you should take normal common sense precautions, but our luminaries have almost a full inch of solid glass on the bottoms. This makes the luminary hard to tip over. The materials for the iridescent or metallic finish also have insulating properties. With the candle burning, you can comfortably hold it in your hands. (we have customers buy certain styles to hold during a candle lit march!)
- What size candle do I put in them?
Our luminaries will take any standard or "fat" votive candle. We do not recommend "tall" votives, only because the candle light won't shine through the design portion properly. For the convenience of our customers we include a wonderful herbal blend reiki charged votive candle FREE!
- I've never seen anything like these before, where do you get them?
We MAKE them! We've been making our unique candle luminaries for 8 years, and selling them at fairs all over the east coast. We're delighted to now be able to offer them to customers worldwide. We developed the process to make our luminaries, and have never seen anything close to our workmanship.
- How do you decide what designs to make?
Mostly by customer requests. A great many of our luminary designs started as custom orders for customers, when complete, we liked the design so much that we added it to our line.
- What materials are the luminaries made with?
We start out with glass. The design is hand colored. Then we layer 5 different materials by hand, to create the unique and beautiful iridescent or metallic finish. All materials used are completely non-toxic. For more information, please see About our Luminaries
- How do I clean my luminary?
Because the inside of the luminary is smooth glass, they are easy to clean. We recommmend that you pop it in your freezer for 10 minutes, and the wax will pop right out. The exterior can be wiped with a damp cloth, and dried.
- If I place an order, and pay with a credit card, is it really safe?
Yes. Your orders are held at a secure server until we pick them up. We have our own merchant account - your order is NOT processed though anyone else. You can also pay by phone. For more information, please see Payments
- How long does it take to get my luminaries after I order them?
It depends on what we have in stock at any given time. We have over 300 different designs and it's impossible to have every one in stock at all times. However 90% of our orders ship out within 2 weeks. If you need an item by a certain date, please let us know in the comment section of the shopping cart, if we can't make your date, we'll let you know.
