Introduction: Tiny Furniture's Dungeon Candle set consists of ten smaller sets of candles, each set with up to seven candles, all on a single sprue. The sizes range from a candle larger than a 28mm head, to seven candles melting on a parchment and cup on a piece of wood. Candles are sold unpainted and painted. If you go for the classic ochre tallow look, the candles evoke the tropic mysterious dungeon-ey semi-abandoned, somewhat creepy, room full of lit candles with a lot of dripping, melted, wax. And someone with enough time to light them. There's plenty of medieval and pseudo-medieval atmosphere with these tiny candles!
Painting: If you've painted candles before, such as on various Tiny Furniture miniatures, painting this set shouldn't be too new. Beginning painters with good brush control shouldn't have too many difficulties with this set. For the miniatures, I started with a white brush-on primer, followed by an ochre basecoat, using Army Painter's Skeleton Bone. I then gave the candles a good wash with brown Army Painter Strong Tone. Some of the candles rest on stones or wood. Paint and wash these. Touch up the candles with ochre paint, or whatever color you want to paint the candles, making sure the wash still makes the melted wax noticable. Then paint the melted wax pure white. It's difficult to distinguish the ochre tallow from the white melted wax, so you may wish to carefully apply wash bordering the melted wax to exaggerate the contrast and blackline the wax. For the wick, paint about 2/3 of the wick yellow, then dot the tip red, using upwards strokes. Some candle wicks are burnt, so dot these dark brown or black. I occasionally use brushtip pens for painting, and found them useful for the red and black. (Game tiles used for background in the last picture are from Galladoria Game's Crown and Laurel Tavern set.)
Conclusion: These candles will be useful for accenting your poorly lit roleplaying experience, and are small, but not too difficult to paint. Enjoy the ambiance of these tiny candles, or at least wonder where the dungeon denizens get them since the next town is so far away...
