Where I travel, I find the exotic. New Orchid floating candles for a tropical paradise setting.
"Travel changes people. It broadens perspectives and teaches new ways to measure quality of life. Many travelers toss aside their hometown blinders. Their prized souvenirs are the strands of different cultures they decide to knit into their own character." A frequent face on the PBS channel, Rick Steves' travel philosophy is woven into his travel guides and TV programs.
With a keen sense of discovery and imagination - our new Orchid floating candles have been created from a series of trials and errors, over the last several weeks, until we reached a mix of skilled technique and surprisingly wonderful random watercolor-like swirls of color. Currently we are offering these two color patterns and a choice of UNscented or lightly scented with our lovely new Jacaranda Tree Blossom fragrance.
In case you are wondering about the image tacked to the window frame, we pay compliments to the lovely Dorothy Lamour, the "sarong queen" who was always featured in the delightful musical comedy films of the 1940's with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.
Sandra has opened the mold to discover the beauty of the candle she poured a few hours ago.
Discover? Yes ~ it takes time for the wax to cool and harden until the mold can be opened to reveal the candle.
Each one will look slightly different because of the techniques and timing she has mastered with swirling different colors and temperatures of wax in to each mold.
Need a larger size for the pool or pond? Check out the Waterlily, Lotus luminary, Hibiscus and Rose Blossom sizes.
One of our master candle makers, Sandra proudly displays her work at the candle factory - a beautiful bouquet of orchid floating candles.

You are hereby cordially invited to create your own centerpiece masterpiece with Orchid floating candles.
Armadilla Wax Works is the "first name in floating candles" because all of our designs are originals, made in the candle factory in Prescott Valley, AZ.
