Though birthday candles are renowned for their wish-granting ability, they typically only work if the wish maker believes in magic or if the wicks are crafted from genie hair. Learn the real magic behind wish granting with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of custom mosaic candle making at Stella Luna in Danville.
From the warm glow of their craft-filled atelier, Stella Luna's enlightened illuminators fan the fires of artistic potential with their mosaic-candle-making sessions. With the help of a seasoned wickspert, would-be light shapers start by choosing from more than 30 shapes and 40 scents, creating an ebullient blueprint for their fledgling flame holder before piecing together each wax-based mosaic masterpiece (starting at $16 per candle).
During the 30- to 45-minute crafting session, candle couturists can opt to tailor their tapers with optional wax cutouts, and wordy wax workers can choose to include a personalized "message in a bottle," stuffing candle centers with sweet nothings capable of passing seamlessly from your hand to the baker’s without arousing suspicion from a jealous, third-wheel butcher.
Stella Luna's candle craftsmanship is suited for all ages and experience levels, though the studio requires adult oversight for pintsize chandlers aged 3–7. Each candle requires three hours to cool, but expedited cooling is also available, cutting the wait to 90 minutes or 450 eye-blinks ($5 per candle).
