Is it safe to use real candles?

Absolutely! Always exercise caution when using candles. Never leave lit candles alone. Some items may become hot when in use. Place a trivet or hot pad to protect fine finished furniture or plastic materials. When spilt wax is hot, it can be wiped off with a cloth. Cooled wax may be picked off. Just be careful not to scratch the surface. Try a plastic knife. If a candle flame comes in contact with the tinplate it will “burn”. There is no fix for this.

We would like to let our customers know that Pietersma Tinworks is currently relocating and is under new ownership. Due to the current pandemic (and its associated material delivery delays); along with the relocation of the equipment, it will be difficult to complete custom orders for the 2020 season. With that being said, please be aware that not all orders can be processed during this transition. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to providing you with our high-quality Canadian made tinware in the coming seasons. Please email garrett@pietersmatinworks.com if you have any questions. Thank you and all the best, Pietersma Tinworks and family
