The Idea behind the Candle:

I've always been fascinated by owls and culture behind them. Throughout history and across many cultures, people have regarded owls with fascination and awe. 

Well, I thought a candle would be perfect fit for all the fascination behind them. This particular owl will be feared and venerated. This particular look will be despised and admired and can be considered wise and foolish.

Product Details:

The "Angry Owl" with an embedded metal aluminum skeleton. As the candle burns, the skeleton frame begins to appear. Each candle will burn for 30+hrs. 

Dimensions: 6 inches tall x 3.5 inches wide x 3 inches thick

I recommend placing your "Angry Owl" in a 4inch dish to contain the melting wax. Placing it in a small bowl will prolong the "Angry Owl" while it burn down.

Why we need the funding:

I have met with my manufacture and we are ready to go into full production, however we need inventory to send samples to distributors, retail stores, press media, and our loyal backers. My current inventory is very small to go into full production and the cost are currently high for small orders. I will need to make a bigger purchase for inventory to be-able to negotiate pricing, which will help in the long run for my small business.

What can you do to help

Spread the word to your family, friends, owl lovers, and anybody who would love to support this project.

If you love owls you'll love this one with your support I can bring this to full production.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Once this kickstarter campaign ends we will be ready for our first production run. I have thought of all the possible delays that could occur from customs to assembly.
This isn't my first time managing a project of this sort so I'm now well aware of the time line of getting things into production. I did have issues first time around, but I can guarntee this time around will go a lot smoother. The best way for me to combat any delays will be keeping in contact with my manufacture daily to ensure everything is completed on time. I will keep backers updated on any delays or issues that do occur.

***Estimated Delivery Date August-September 2015***

Quality control will be my number one priority. I've been through candle making before and I got most of the little things I had issues in the past with fixed. These products aren't cheap to produce, and one little mess up could mean the value of our product gets perceived negatively. To combat this, I will personally be inspecting every single unit from our first inventory order to make sure that whatever gets sent out to our users, distributors, and retailers is of top quality.
