Our candles are made of all-natural soy wax and have a 40-hour burn life with 24 scents to choose from. They're fun to make and also make the perfect gifts!  This Fun Filled experience typically takes about 15 minutes so you will need to arrive 30 minutes before your painting party. You will choose your label, mix your oil and pour your candle.  We will be there from start to finish to ensure you leave with a perfect creation.  Is this a bridal party? Why not have us design a special sticker to memorialize this event? Or maybe you want to put your company logo on it for your team event! The sky is the limit! When your party is over, the candle is ready to go home with you.
