Candle Making Kits


 

We are now doing a few of our most popular candle moulds as complete candle making kits.  The kits contain the moulds, Kerasoy wax, one metre of wick, wick holders, two colour powder dyes (red and blue) and printed, easy to follow instructions.  At the moment there are two kits available.  One contains 3 different shaped moulds – pyramid, pillar and square and the other contains 4 pillar moulds.  There is enough wax and dye to make one candle from each candle mould. These kits are perfect to get you started if you are new to candle making as they contain everything you need to begin with without having to source each item individually, all at a very reasonable price and with free postage within the UK.  The kits are supplied in a plain white cardboard box which make them easy to wrap if you are giving them as a gift.   We also stock lots of different candle mould shapes available as multiples or singles. Why not pop over to our website and have a look.

Anyone for cake????

 

The new inserts are ready for the large round candle mould we manufacture which allows you to make segments for candles or soaps.  The insert sits inside the candle mould and makes six equal sized segments.  Anyone else in the mood for chocolate cake now?

Duck Pond

At the rear of our factory we have a steam engine condensation pond dating from 1882.   This is now used by a family of ducks as their own private pool and every year we have new ducklings in the pond.  This year the little raft that the ducks use was beginning to sink so one of our factory staff had her husband build them a new one.  Today we officially launched the ‘HMS Quack’.  Thanks to Vanessa and her very talented husband, Simon, the ducks have a new raft to safely rest on.

There’s never a dull moment here at Proops!  Thanks for stopping by.

School’s Out for Summer

We are heading to the end of the school year and as children are preparing to move on to new classes, some people like to give the teacher a gift.   In some schools/pre-schools funding for classroom basics like bowls and glue-spreaders is not always available so instead of the usual chocolates, flowers and mugs why not give some school/pre-school supplies?  You could always get together with a few parents and put together a little ‘supplies gift basket’.  I’m sure the teachers will thank you, not only for the supplies but also for saving their waistlines from all the lovely chocolates and cakes they usually receive.

 

 

We stock scissors, paintbrushes, glue spreaders, plastic tweezers, dipping bowls, mixing bowls and lots more on our website, why not pop over and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.
