A unique Cyanotype candle cover with a flock of birds seen through the intricate pattern of Winter tree branches. When used with the flameless flickering tealight provided a beautiful warm glowing scene is created.

I use the old photographic process of Cyanotype to create my images. A light sensitive solution is applied to 300gsm watercolour paper a negative laid on then exposed to sunlight, the solution is then rinsed off and the paper dried, fixing the image in lovely blue tones. To make these candle covers the paper is formed into a cylinder and wooden hoops fixed to top and bottom.

A warm toned flickering flameless tealight is supplied with the candle cover. It cleverly has a timer inside which switches it off automatically after 6 hours then will swicth it back on the same time the next day. Replaceable standard lithium coin batteries CR2032 are readily available, one is provided. (Not suitable for use with real candles.)

Supplied in a lovely quality brown kraft gift box with a white inside, finished with blue bakers twine and 'The Way to Blue' gift tag.

10cm diameter, 19cm height.

Please note each candle cover is unique and hand-made to order. Due to the nature of the cyanotype process the blues may vary slightly.
