Frequently Asked Questions
     

      What is the function of these sculptures?
Fantasy Lane creates copper herb fairies, plant devas and whimsical sprites. They serve as shadow casters for the garden or altar. Each piece holds a standard size birthday candle on the back side. This candle serves as a reminder to make blessings and wishes. When the sculptures are placed between a lit candle and the wall they produce wonderful shadows.

They are a standard size birthday candle. You can buy the beeswax type from health food stores. You can also by packages of a dozen from Fantasy Lane for $1.50 + shipping.

      I see rainbow colors on the wings of the fairies and dragonflies. How is this achieved?
Sarah uses several techniques to color her work. Liver of sulfur is one technique used to bring about the beautiful rainbow effect. She also uses a form of acrylic paint to retain a lasting purple color.
