Another wedding.....

The start of Gel candles for our next wedding. Shot glasses lined up to cool.


The shot glasses were filled with coloured Gel to match the place cards that were placed on the tables at the reception.
The colour was purple and the Gel was scented with rose fragrance.
A perfect match.


These shot glasses were placed on the tables at the reception as a gift to all family and friends who attended.
A perfect way to have others remember your special day.

Katrina & Antony 27.10.07

The champagne glasses were filled with lightly tinted clear Gel to make them look like champers. Of course we added Champagne fragrance to the Gel before we poured.

Special thanks to Katrina and Antony. We hope you have a great life together.


These shot glasses are perfect for the promotion of your business..

Lise' Jewellery

These shot glasses were made for a very good friend, who makes her own jewellery. The glasses are pinkish/strawberry in colour and of course are scented with strawberry fragrance. These shots are a great way to promote your business. Maybe a great Christmas thank you, or just a give away to promote your business.
The cost of these items begin at $3.60/ glass .. of course the more you buy the cheaper it gets..

These long stemmed tea light holders were filled with coloured GEL. The GEL is scented with lavender fragrance. They look very nice and are sold as a pair.


The candle maker placed sand in the bottom of these small coffee cups and a small glass fish. She then poured clear GEL into the cup.The GEL has had rose fragrance added and the top of each glass has another colour added. A very nice candle.


Here are two more of our mermaid GEL candles. They are both the same as their sister above.


Here we have a fancy edged bowl. We have added coloured sand to the bottom, a star fish and of course our coloured mermaid. We poured clear Gel, that was scented with SPRING RAIN fragrance, into the bowl to cover our little mermaid.


Here we have a nice frosted glass that has been filled with coloured GEL and fragrance added to make them look like milk shakes. Each milkshake has a glass straw. Our milkshakes come in strawberry (pink colour & strawberry scented) and chocolate (brownish colour & chocolate scented). Both of our shakes do really smell like the real thing.. yummy, i can taste them now..

This is how the work room looks after a GEL candle making session. These are new creations that are being made, but a lot of these new candles never make it out of this room. If the candle maker does not like the finished product, she just removes the GEL and starts again. No GEL candle leaves this room if the boss is not happy with it.

NEW GEL CANDLES waiting to be packed

A few of the GEL candles that have been produced . We have had a busy year so far, but the chief candle maker keeps coming up with new creations each day.

WILLY the Whale

This is a great candle. Here we have a 8 sided glass bowl with sand, rocks and shells placed on the bottom. We have then added some small fish and a black whale on a stand. The glass is then filled with GEL to which ocean fragrance has been added. This candle will burn for up to 40 hours.


Here we have a tall wine glass that has a ceramic cat placed inside and then a wick is inserted and then filled with clear GEL. A nice gift for a person that loves cats.

We made these GEL CANDLES as decorations for wedding tables. The glass has a bed of green sand and several sea shells were placed on this bed of sand. The GEL is clear and scented coconut. As you will see from the following pics, the finished product was awesome.

The start of the project. Here are the GEL candles ready for the big day.

This is what was created.. Our candle is the inside glass and it was placed inside another vase. They were both placed onto a large sea grass coaster and had rocks and shells placed around them. The arrangment was placed in the centre of the tables.
These candles were used on the gift table.
Here it is. The finished product, on the table and alight for the wedding feast. Looked great.
THANK YOU TO KEITH and FIONA. We hope you have a great future together.

While waiting for the GEL to melt, sand, shells, glass ornamentswick or whatever else is needed can be added to the bottom of your selected container. Wick can be fixed to the sustainers and set into the bottom. After the GEL is melted it is ready for pouring.
