about

 

ROSILY was started by me, Rosily Roberts, in December 2020. I am a London based artist, working in oil on canvas, pen and ink on paper and, more recently, acrylic on candles! 

I take commissions for paintings, cards, candles - or really anything else that can be painted on, so please feel free to get in touch! 

 

My candles are painted in a non-toxic, water based acrylic paint, and are perfectly safe to burn. You might find that the paint melts at a slightly slower pace than the wax, and I recommend trimming off any excess paint as the candle burns down. And of course, never leave a lit candle unattended! 

For enquiries, commissions, or just because I'd love to hear from you, please feel free to get in touch at hello@rosily.co.uk! 

 

 Shipping and returns

I now ship worldwide. For standard shipping within the UK, please allow 2-3 working days. For shipments to Europe, please allow up to a week, and for the rest of the world, please allow up to two weeks for your deliveries to arrive. 

I do not currently accept returns, but if you have received a broken candle, please do let me know and I will be happy to replace it. 

 

Sustainability

I endeavour to make my products as sustainable and ethical as possible. My candles are sourced from a independent, sustainable maker in Germany. Each candle is hand painted by me using a non-toxic paint, and wrapped and shipped by me from my kitchen in south-west London. The other things I sell are either second hand and sourced by me, normally from antique markets. A few are made by my friends (the cards and prints) and even my mum (the aprons)! 

I do not use any plastics in the packaging of my candles, although sometimes it is necessary when shipping fragile antiques. In that case, I re-use old packaging wherever possible - so excuse the repurposed boxes! And please do reuse, or the very least recycle, my packaging if you can.

Ensuring that my products - the way I make and ship them - has the smallest environmental impact is really important to me. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them!
