Candle makers who burn the candle at both ends are twice as likely to set both their shoes on fire. Melt your mind with more waxy facts with today's deal: for $19, you'll get $40 worth of candle making at Pure Light, a create-your-own-candle studio with two area locations—Irvine and Laguna Beach. Each studio hosts all the materials, tools, and space required to turn any burning desire into a safe, small-scale fire; at the Laguna location, guests are welcome to BYOB. This Groupon is only valid toward base candle shapes in 13 oz. or 16 oz. sizes. This Groupon is not valid toward the store's products, or for use toward parties, specials, or events.
At Pure Light, the candle-making process entails an elegant journey through four simple steps. Start with one of more than two dozen distinct aromas, and then select a mold that best supports your scented story, such as a star, a flower, or a pre-rhinoplasty sphinx. Clients can then add in a few of the 50-plus embellishments offered by Pure Light, with accessories including moons and dragonflies. In the fourth and final step, guests will blend in a chunk of their favorite color to effectively bring out the shade of the wick's eye. Choose either a 13 oz. candle ($23) or a 16 oz. candle ($26), applying the remaining value of this Groupon to embellishments, ranging from small wax items ($0.50 each) to the assortment of fine tokens ($2–$7).
Once ingredients have been gathered, clients will turn over their creation to Pure Light, who will apply binding wax to solidify the waxy vision. The cooling process can take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the candle's size and the mood of the studio's interior wind gusts. As the wax hardens, feel free to browse the on-site store, or, for parties of six or more, enjoy a festive feast (additional cost of $3.50–$15 per person) on the studio's lanai. Call up the butcher and the baker to your candlestick shaker and ignite your inner flame with Pure Light.
