IT, particularly Loops, seems like an ideal after dinner illusion to present to a group of friends after a nice meal. Several elements are there to work with: spinning fork, jumping fork from wineglass, floating ring, matchbox (Falling), floating napkin, Touching Trick, etc.

Dimming the lights slightly sets a nice ambiance of enchantment.

Under these circumstances, will candlelight expose IT?

Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Since a candle is a point light source just like an electric bulb, you will still need to watch your "reflection" angles, so that the IT won't glare.

That said, IT will typically become much more invisible under candles because of the dim light and diffused, flickering shadows.

Just as Jason said, candles do expose IT, case it makes for a reflection on the thread, as for loops l have not had that problem yet, cause often doing routines your hands make a shadow so the light do not reflect on the loop.
The inventor of the loop - Finn Jon has lecture notes with routines and lighting concerns, l can try to contact him to see if their for sale.

Loops are the best for that sort of lighting I agree with Eirik, in fact I've even used it in a very bright hospital and if you keep about two feet from the person, you can't see IT
