Wizards' Journal #4,
there is an e-Book showing how to make a self-lighting
candle that requires you to push a button or work an
on-off switch to light a candle electrically. Jolyon
Jenkins takes the concept a step further and provides
detailed plans to build a radio control receiver into a
pillar candle and link it to a keychain transmitter so
you can light the candle remotely. So really, it is a Self-Contained
Self-Lighting Radio-Controlled Candle. Now that's spooky!
Note: This is an e-Book of instructions for
building the effect, and not the actual prop itself. You
make the device following photos and instructions and get
the parts from sources suggested by the author. Total
cost in British pounds was a little less than £20 which
is a little less than $32.00 in US Dollars (2011 values).
The video shows the actual candle and how it lights
itself by pushing the button of a radio controlled
transmitter. This can be used for seances, haunted
houses, ghost hunts, Sefalaljia,
or Wizard Magic.
This project is good for beginners to electronic
magic, or Magi-tronics as we like to call it.
For a more advanced Self Lighting candle that can relight
itself as often as you wish without resetting it, see
Jenkins' Relightable Candle HERE.
