    ok,I wasnt sure where to post this, but.....................................Do most tend to burn a candle in a wall sconce, like the fancy scrolled ones, or do most use them for decoration? thanks, dale

    As far as I know. People do tend to use sconces as decoration rather than burning candles in them. It also depends on the type of scronce it is. A scrolled sconce, i imagine, would just be for decoration. Hope this helps.

      The sconces I make use tea lights. They have been perfectly safe.
      Tea lights come with there own little cup to retain the melted wax till it is all bured up.
      You can get a candle cup for regular taper candles. Some have a little brass ferrule on the end.
      The most important thing to remember is never leave the candle unattended.

            I agree. They're much better than scrolls.

                The reason I'm asking is I am making a pair of sconces, and am considering acrylic mirror as part of the medium in making them. The candle would be approximatly 4 inches away from the acrylic, and before i go into production mode on this, I was wondering if my idea is stupid, and I should just opt for wood in its place. Glass mirror is not an option because of color, I want a colored mirror. Thanks, dale

                  Now I have the picture. Sounds like a great idea to me.
                  I hope you get some good answers on here.

                    Most of the heat from a candle will rise.
                    I don't think you would have too much problem with acrylic 4" away from the flame.

                    Maybe you could just run a test with the acrylic for several hours before you make the sconces.

                        Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...
