      Hello – this site has been EXTREMELY wonderful! Have gotten many different answers to a question, and would like yours, too.
      Project in question is a pillar candle base. Is there a fire hazard if a candle burns down to the resin base? What about the walls, as in a votive-type or cubed candle holder?

      I could always cover the resin with clear glass on either the candle-side, but that kind of defeats the purpose of using resin!
      Your thoughts on the safety of resin as a candle holder is appreciated. I don’t want to cause any hazards!
      Thanks so much.

      Hi Karen,

      Resins for crafting generally don’t have a high heat deflection temperature. Using them to make candle holders is not advised.
