Would it be possible to to actually burn the candle at both ends? Yes! but it gives a bit of a mess. The candle will drip a lot, so I need something to catch the hot wax.
Do not leave the candle burning unattended! If you leave it burning, this construction will probably burn your house down!
Step 1: You Will Need
- Acrylic material
- 2 tiles
- a candle
- Lasercutter (or makerspace)
- blunt knife
Step 2: Measure
Measure the tiles. My tiles are 98 x 98 mm.
Measure the candle. Mine is 220 mm.
Step 3: Cut the Candle
To get a wick on both ends, you will need to remove some candle from the bottom. If you use a blunt knife, this is very easy and you won't cut through the wick.
Step 4: Engrave the Tile
Just for fun, I engraved one of the tiles with the text: 'Yes, I burn the candle at both ends'
Both Gravit and PDF files are included.
Step 5: Cut the Candle Holder
Cut the candle holder from 3 mm acrylic. If your tiles are not exactly the same size, you will need to adjust the files.
Both gravit and PDF files are included.
Step 6: Put the Candle Holder Together
It is easy to slide the 4 parts together and add the tiles.
Step 7: Just Add Candle
Just put your candle on the holder and light both ends.
Be careful! this candle will drip... A lot!
