CANDLE MAKING KIT by MODELETTO
Always wanted to try pottery or make a candle? Pottery and candle making at your place awaits! Our kit comes with everything you need to make a candle holder + candle from the comfort of your own home or wherever you please.
No kilns are required - that’s the fun of our clay. Model your shape at home and let it air-dry - there is also the option to make them ceramic.
We provide you with inspirational instructions + videos to help get you started (we encourage that you watch then put away all digital devices).
Embrace the imperfectness of your piece, the wobbles, the creases, the blobs, the messiness of it all. We actually love the quirky & odd-looking shapes - after all that’s REAL life outcomes of any journey.
Your art therapy kit includes:
- a mindful experience
- air-dry clay - enough to make one candle holder
- sculpting tools + sponge + paint brush
- white paint + sealant
- frangrance oil
- soy wax flakes
- instruction and inspiration booklet
- eco-friendly products +packaging
Drying time is 24-48 hours depending on thickness (for best results leave for 1 week). It looks great in its natural state with 2 coats of sealer, or paint with white acrylic paint (and colours if you wish), let the paint dry and apply 2 coats of sealer.
If you'd like to make your holder ceramic after your clay has dried, don't apply any of our sealer or acrylic paint before taking it to your local kiln
Who are the kits for?
- Non-creatives and someone who has never touched clay before (you don’t have to be an artist to experience the benefits of art therapy).
- Ceramic enthusiasts.
- Individuals who are interested in disconnecting from their screens (It's hard to scroll with messy hands).
- Friends, flatmates, or family who are looking for something different to do together.
- A gift for someone who needs to free their mind (most people we know)
