The Candle Dipping Shop, Lion’s River

This lovely little shop has the potential to keep children amused for ages with it’s candle dipping and painting and sand art offerings. With a wide selection of candles to choose from, ranging in price from R9 up to over R60 depending on size, kids can choose butterflies, cats, boats, cars and much more.

Once a selection has been made, it costs R4 extra to dip and paint. Beginning with light colours first, the candles are dipped into a vat of coloured wax of their choice, then into a barrell of cold water to set before dipping the next colour. Once the candle has been dipped in all the chosen colours, a table of paints and brushes await for decorating. Once complete, the paint is dried with a hairdryer and dipped into a glossy sealant – ready to be presented as a gift for mom or dad; or most likely granny or grandpa.
