Snuff - Self-Extinguishing Candles
At some point in their mysterious journey, a bizarre magician will find the need for a self-extinguishing candle. Whether for a séance or a simple 'Dead or Alive' test, the concept of a candle capable of snuffing itself out has captivated many eminent figures within the realm of magic throughout the years.
Before formulating my unique approach, I relied on the simplest and most effective methods outlined in Borrodin's 'Final Curtain' and Corinda's '13 Steps to Mentalism'. However, a wick that topples or completely disappears could arouse suspicion, so it was essential for me that the remains of the smouldering wick remained visible after it had been extinguished. The new method from Lebanon Circle preserves a discernible extinguished wick, is uncomplicated to setup, and the execution enables a series of candles that all extinguish at different intervals.
The Lebanon Circle 'Snuff' candles, regardless of size, grant you a time frame ranging from 30 seconds to approximately 1 minute 45 seconds before the candle self-extinguishes. It's a budget-friendly and straightforward approach that guarantees the candle will indeed go out. However, if exact timing is necessary, alternative techniques are worth exploring. This method is the perfect choice in a setting like a séance or paranormal environment where uncertainties prevail, and spirits have the upper hand.
Each candle can be reset within seconds and used repeatedly, enduring countless uses without the risk of melting away while maintaining an appearance identical to regular candles. Once ignited, the candle will smoothly and noiselessly extinguish itself at an approximate preset interval without emitting any crackling or spluttering, ultimately leaving only a smouldering wick behind.
