The great masters of old worked by candlelight. And they burned down their workshops like every week, so maybe this is a better way?
When you're in your workshop, you're gonna need two things. The first is light. The second? Security. And a bank of 3600 candles isn't really something that offers security. Like, how would you light them? How would you snuff them? And if you stacked them one beside the other, wouldn't that take most of the room on your floor?
Of course, if you were to get a four-foot-long work light that was a 250-watt equivalent and had 3600 lumens, plugged into any standard outlet, and easily hung from the ceiling, maybe you'd have some light AND the security that your huge pile of candles won't fall over on you in the night.
