I put some "iron bars" in the windows. The bars will require a mist of paint or dulling spray to cut reflections.

Coming along beautifully Dave!
Why worry about tetanus, .....there's an vaccine for that!
Press on, ....at least it's something you can do in isolation.
The damned internet here has slowed to a pre-dial-up like crawl as everybody is at home now using it!
It's taking several attempts to even get on this site. Mad

Remember my prediction: enforced Internet blackouts. Once people begin to express discontent about the lockdowns on social media, we will see social media sites blacked out or censored, the excuse being "to conserve bandwidth for emergency and medical purposes."

I've thought from the beginning that the shift to Internet from broadcast, cable, and DVD for streaming media content was unsustainable. The infrastructure simply isn't there to handle everybody watching Disney+ and Netflix online. The cable repair guys who come out to the house once in a while (because we're the last house on the line, so there are frequent connectivity and bandwidth issues) concur that the infrastructure simply cannot keep pace with the increase in demand. And that was before the lockdowns and shutdowns and forced house arrest.

The Iron bars in the window look so realistic.

That's because they're real iron (or steel). In the past I used painted wooden dowels or plastic drinking straws, but now I use actual bits of metal wire.

She reminds me of those GO-GO Dancers that apparently used to gyrate suspended in little cages back when discotheques were all the rage!

She's a great figure,....demure, but at the same time with a hint of a darker persona underneath that Victorian primness.
(I have that same candelabra too!)

It's a great little candlestick... when the candles stay in place. I wish I had the photo-editing skills to edit in little flames. Or the cleverness to craft some faux-flames that looked sufficiently realistic.

I'd do it for you, but Blackbrazen will probably do it so much better with his wonderful skills and programme.

Y'know... when I was a very young child, my grandparents had a little novelty toy called a Smoking Monkey. It was a little figurine of a monkey, and it came with tiny paper cigarettes. You'd actually light the cigarettes, stick 'em in the monkey's mouth, and the monkey would be smoking a cigarette.

If I recall correctly, the cigarettes were about the size of the candles in this candlestick. I wonder if smoking monkeys are still available?

Quick check of eBay... the world's research archive...

Insulation Foam Walls - Page 2 Smoking_monkey

There it is! That was the one! I might even have one of these little monkeys around here somewhere. No cigarettes, though, I'm pretty sure of that.

And... ta daaaa!!!! https://www.ebay.com/itm/40-MAGIC-TRICK-PUFF-CIGARETTE-BLOW-SMOKE-RINGS-FOR-SMOKER-SMOKING-MONKEY-TOY/251366134101

I might need to try this.

If I recall correctly, those little "cigarettes" were loaded with intermittent little beads of a chemical spaced to give out periodic puffs of smoke, so as to give the appearance of smoking. 
I don't think the effect would be all that suitable for a candelabra.

You are correct about the smoke puffs. There is a video clip on the eBay listing showing one in action!

I had forgotten exactly what they did. Not very candle-like, apparently.
