Black Metal Death candle
Combining our love for Black metal, death and the undead, this beautiful black coffin crypt candle is a wonderfully morbid take on the folklore and superstitions of old surrounding the theme of death. There are many records throughout history of "deviant burials", burials in which towns and villages believed the recently deceased could come back to wreak havoc on the living. Some believed in order to kill a vampire, you had to wedge a small brick in its mouth to stop it feeding. Others believed a stake through the heart would kill a vampire.
But sometimes.... Sometimes folk would be too scared to approach the crypt of a suspected vampire and instead, they would offer sacrifice to the undead as a plea to let the village be. But that's just folktales... Right?

Cotton braided wick which is not self trimming. Candle will need to be trimmed to a quarter inch before each use.
As with all Firsteditioncandleco creations, you will need to burn this for a minimum of 2hrs to prevent tunnelling. Hand poured candle with a cotton core wick, trim before each use.
5x2 size burns for 45-50hrs 3x2 burns for 35-40hrs
Do not leave candle burning unattended. Due to the handmade nature colour and size of candle may vary slightly.
This is an original concept, as all Firsteditioncandleco creations are.
