Although Appearing and Vanishing Candles are not a new magic prop, this model made from stainless steel with powder coated color is far superior to plastic models previously available. The superior temper of the metal prop eliminates the spring problems associated with the plastic model. You can also use a silk, feather spray or other similar insert with this prop because of the stronger spring action. The candle will outlast plastic candles several times over.
We have used a real candle piece to fuel the lit feature, instead of the usual petrol tank for its various advantages. The biggest problem with a petrol tank with wick is that the petrol tends to evaporate very fast, and if dry the candle will not light. You need to fill this tank just before every show. With a real candle these problems are completely eliminated. A candle piece is good for several shows, and when required can be very easily replaced. Once fitted, you do not have to bother as this will be good for several shows. You can just pick up the prop and use it.
Since the produced candle is often held in one hand, you may need to light it with one free hand. You cannot use a match box to light this, as both hands are not free. You could use a Cigarette Lighter to light the candle. However we feel it is much more magical to produce a Lit Match from under your lapel or collar to light the candle. A Lit Match producer gimmick enables you to do this, and one of these is also supplied with the candle as an extra bonus.
We have the item available in RED or WHITE. Please specify which color is required at the time of ordering.
Please note that the candle stand shown in the photo is not part of the prop supplied. You can use your own candle stand if you wish to use one, as ordinary or fancy as you wish.
