From the Netherlands
You will also receive 4 small bags of coloring
Please read the enclosed instructions carefully.
Fill a container or glass with water. The quantity you determine. You need to only leave enough room for a layer of oil. You can also put something in the water, decorative items in the glass first, and you can color the water as desired (some packets of coloring are included). Pour a layer of oil on the water. Use any vegetable oil (not scented or olive oil). The oil will float on top (so it will not mix with the water). You determine how much, it must cover the surface. ½ inch of oil in a wine glass will provide about 25 hours of burn time. Tear a piece of kitchen paper towel (cotton fibers, not artificial) of about 1.2 by 1.2 inches. Roll it tightly into a small tube and cut with scissors to about 5/8 inch. Put this tube into the middle of the floater piece (the opening is there, do not try to make it bigger or anything) Let the piece fall gently into the bowl. Through the special channels the oil will drift to the paper towel. It will thus be drenched in oil. Because you can later add as much oil as you want, the paper wont burn down or disappear. Light the candle. You will now have a flame without smoke, smell or any waves. You can extinguish at any time. When you do extinguish it, there will be no smoke. The candle will burn as long as there is oil present. A bottle of vegetable oil provides about 1,000 hours of burn time. If the oil is used up, water will come into the ridges (channels) and the candle will extinguish itself. This candle never is used up, you can re-use it as much as you want. Because the candle part is made of heat resistant material (fiberglass) it can be used forever. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF SMALL CHILDREN AND ANIMALS DO NOT BURN ANYTHING UNATTENDED .BEWARE: DO NOT USE A REGULAR CANDLE WICK, THESE WOULD BURN OUT BECAUSE CANDLEWICKS DO NOT NEED OIL TO BURN.

surprisingly cool Jul 01, 2010
The photos and colored water didn't impress me much, and I was skeptical about how well a piece of rolled-up paper towel could work as a wick. I followed the instructions (but with plain clear water instead of adding the color) and was pleasantly surprised by how well these work and how nice they look in votive candle holders. The light is a little brighter than a typical votive candle. I am using these in the Wrought Iron 6 Arm Votive Candle Chandelier w/ Pots-Hand Made and they look great and give much more downward light (towards the table under the chandelier) than votive candles. I am using the cheapest store-brand vegetable oil I could find, with wicks rolled from a name-brand (starts with "Boun") paper towel. There is no smoke and only a little odor (like cooking french fries ... and much more mild than candles).
Caution: stick to the instructions and use only vegetable oil. I tried using citronella torch oil in one, and it seemed to work fine at first, but then after the oil warmed up enough, the entire surface caught fire. I was experimenting cautiously and had a snuffer (jar large enough to place over the entire votive candle holder) nearby. Without the snuffer, the situation could have been dangerous since the flame was too large to blow out and since the intense heat could have fractured the glass and spilled flaming oil everywhere if I hadn't put it out right away. Vegetable oil has a much higher flash point and should be perfectly safe. In the votive candle holders, it stays cool enough to comfortably touch (I am guessing around 120 deg F) and is thus well below its flash point (aprx 620 deg F for canola oil).
Fun new look. Mar 06, 2013

I wanted a unique gift for a friend, and this is what I came up with. She's an avid diver, so I did an underwater scene in the glass vase, combined with the blue powder (of which you need very little) for a personalized candle. She loved it!
I did have a bit of trouble getting the wick to work out. Definitely heed the instructions on the length.
Awesome Oct 31, 2012
The candles are awesome. I put them in a wrought iron holder that hangs from my deck roof. I have purple and orange for Halloween. They give off the perfect amount of light (more than a regular tea candle) Beautiful!
Great Product!! Aug 08, 2011
Hoping to use these for my centerpieces for my wedding. I played around with them a little bit and they are perfect!
They're beautiful but a lot of work Jul 14, 2011
First: NEVER USE LAMP OIL WITH THIS PRODUCT -- TOO FLAMMABLE! The directions call for vegetable oil and specifically exclude olive oil. I made the mistake of using standard lamp oil and two of the floating candles caught fire within about 30 minutes. I then tried peanut oil, which didn't light at all, and I've given up for the moment. You have to get the wicks at JUST the right height -- if they're too short, they won't light, and if they're too tall, you have a high, smokey flame. If you can get the things just right I'm sure they're fine, but I found them to be too much work.
