Tacky gold candles make me happy.
There is gold dust on the outside of the stocky candle and an off-white wax on the inside.
The black wick is burning with a red tip making an s-shape. The flame has melted the top of the candle into a wax soup ladle.
The outside is an engraved pattern of paved vertical lines.
The shimmering effect is beautiful even to my adult eyes.
