Frequently asked question

1.     What is soy wax? Soy wax is a natural, sustainable plant-based product used in a variety of manufacturing processes. The wax is creamy and ivory in color when poured, cooled, and set.

2.     How long does it take to make a soy candle? The amount of time it takes to make a candle depends on the type, pillar or container. Pillars take longer as they are molded. The Copper Fox makes small batches of candles daily, which set overnight and cure for up to one week before being ready for shipment around the globe.

3.     How long do candles typically burn? The amount of time a candle will burn varies based on the type of wax used, the size of the candle. You can figure anywhere between 5 to 7 hours of urn time per ounce of soy - as a general rule. Location is also a factor, as candles burned in the path of a draft will have a faster burn time than those placed on a level spot, free of drafts.

4.     How to I remove wax spills on surfaces? The cleaning method really depends on the surface the wax is on. Removing wax from glass or metal surfaces differs greatly from removing wax from cloth or carpet. Our best advise if to look online or visit this link:

5.      Is it possible to have custom candles made by the Copper Fox? Absolutely, within reason. At the Fox we do not use dyes, paraffin, or chemical fragrances; it’s just not good candle making practice in our opinion. If here is something specific you are interested in and we do not have it in our petite inventory we can make our candles for you and ship them out within reasonable timelines. If there is a scent you are interested in that we do not carry we can work with you to come up with a suitable solution to fit your event’s needs and within reasonable timelines. Contact us and we will be happy to chat with you.
