DIY Candle Kit – Solid Pink
These DIY Candle Kits from Sydney based concrete artist, Aggre, are the perfect activity to do solo or with your family/house mates. They also make for the perfect gift!
These are free from toxins, chemicals, and paraffins.
The vessels are handcast from coloured concrete, carefully mixed and layered over multiple days, then sealed with high-quality sealant. Concrete is wild like you. Each piece is made by hand by Nikki Sparkes, no two are the same.
It may sound daunting to make your own candle, but trust us, it’s really not. Inside each kit you get everything you need to make your very own candle at home. We have selected a different colour and scent combination for each kit - so there really is something for everyone!
The vessels are so gorgeous, all handmade and each one unique and different to the other.
Once your candle is finished do not throw these vessels away - use to store any bits and bobs, brushes or even as a pot for your new plant baby!

ABOUT THE BRAND
Aggre is a Sydney based brand founded by artist Nikki Sparkes. Nikki created the brand as a rebellion against 'fast consumer products' with a passion for creating pieces for the home that would last a life time. The vessels appear delicate but are incredibly strong and durable, their risk of breaking is lowered, therefore reduces the amount sent to landfill.
The DIY Candle Kits were created due to the Covid-19 pandemic. More and more people were at home looking for activities to do and Nikki launched her now best selling kits.
"Working with concrete is a process that I adore —the alchemy of liquid becoming solid. Mixing, colouring, pouring, drying—the process is uncontrived and unpretentious, but the results are bold, beautiful and organic, and no two pieces are ever the same." Nikki Sparkes
