Decorative Tall Taper Candles
Taper candles are tall, thin candles, which burn for varying lengths of time, depending on the height of the candle. When people think of candles, taper candles are often what spring to mind, since they are extremely common and very widely used. There are a number of ways to make taper candles. Some companies make their tapers in the traditional way, by dipping. Dipped candles are made by repeatedly dipping a wick into a pot of wax, with most producers looping an extra-long wick so that they make two candles at once. One advantage to dipping is that it allows candle producers to change colors, creating a colorful array of layers in a single candle. Well-made dipped candles are also very smooth, although some producers deliberately create a lumpy look for aesthetic reasons.
You will also need a candle-making thermometer to measure the temperature of the melted wax for the taper candles. A candy thermometer doesn’t measure the right range of temperatures; you will need a thermometer that can measure 140° to 160°F (60° to 71°C). A thermometer specific to candle-making will have a clip on the side that allows you to clip it to the inside of the melting can.
