What is The Jacks Candle?

Hi Kickstarter!

We are Sculpy, creator of the candle project ‘the Jacks’. We are a team made up of two graphic designers, a 3D artist and a sculptor.

We always liked to amaze our friends by creating new things which has never existed before. So we have decided to make a team and create things since when we met in university. We have wished to make our own brand with very unique sensitivity. After working on individual's fields, we started our own company since 2013.
.

The Jacks candle series is our first challenge seeking for fun and unique ‘things’ in your every daily life.

How did the idea come up?

One of our sculpting member's hobby is to make useless things with 3D printer. One day he realized that he had no ashtray so he created a skull looking ashtray for his cigarettes, and Sophie has lighten a candle in it.

And then an idea came up..
.
 
The "USELESS" ash tray
The "USELESS" ash tray
We thought it was fun to depict a dripping of wax as a tear flowing from the skull.  
By adding diverse product lines we have created our first The Jacks candle series.


How are we making holders and candles?:

Ceramic-

When we have started our project, bringing something inside our heads to a real life wasn’t easy. The first problem was to choose the right material for the holder.
.
The material of 3D printer was too expensive to afford and the metal was difficult to form in shapes to create a mold. Among all, ceramic was the perfect material which was environmental friendly and cheap. It could even lessen a burden for our customers.
.
But it was hard to find a craft man who could actually form a mold with our prototype. We met dozens of craft mans but they all have refused except one who had 40 years experience in this field.
.
By cooperating with him and overcoming many difficulties the first prototype was created.
.
Failed prototypes (Not so beautiful)
Failed prototypes (Not so beautiful)

In the beginning, there were numerous technical difficulty producing whole body without separating in pieces. So we chose to divide the body into three different parts and gluing them together after making the parts separately.

17 pieces of molds required for 3 different parts (Not Good)
17 pieces of molds required for 3 different parts (Not Good)

But in a baking process, three different parts were twisted and made lines on the surfaces of the ceramic. That wasn’t what we wanted.

We didn’t give up and started making molds by ourselves. We have repeated numerous simulations with computer and created a mold with 3d printer which was more precise than a human hand.

Finally we could lessen the pieces of mold from 17 to 5 and we could create whole body in one piece.

6 pieces of molds required for one body (YAY!)

It is almost there to reach $100,000 and only 2 days left !!!

Candles-

We thought it was all over after achieving final prototype of ceramic holder but it was just a beginning of our journey. Making a candle also wasn’t very easy. We had to create beautiful, stable candle design which could form dripping of wax as a tear flowing from the skull but we have failed many times.

At this stage we had to consider everything because everything was related to the failure such as size, angle, and even thickness.

With uncountable trials and improvements we have finally found a perfect shape which could fit in our holder and drip like a tear. The Jacks candle was produced in 5 different colors and scents with soy wax in consideration of customer’s tastes.

Which stage are we on?

We will be fully ready to step up to mass production right after the campaign is over. We are planning to participate directly in production just in case there is an unexpected problems.  

It will take approximately 2-2.5 months for the production and to get it delivered to your locations.

And this is our timeline.

Stretch Goal

With the supports from the kickstarters The Jacks will start the melting series.

With the values you saw with us and by developing them we wish to produce more products which can bring fun and distinctive ideas to your life.

But to do so, we need Kick start’s supports! Please share this campaign with your friends.
.

NEW GOAL - $120,000

.

We could not be indifferent to think of stretch goal with this enormous funding from our backers. We thought it was great idea to make a coaster which will prevent you from cleaning up the tears melted down to the ground.

If we achieve $120,000 we will provide all backers one coaster who has pledged more than $42. 

(Starts from Rabbit Mania / Deer Mania and above)

We will update the design and image of the actual coaster as soon as it gets completed.

*Future retail estimated price: $22*

.


Why do we need money?

For mass production, we will have to build more silicone molds and purchase production tools.

We are planning to add another stage for quality assurance so the only candles with the best quality can be delivered.

And furthermore…

We have been developing first melting series of The Jacks for a year now.

Currently, we are leasing a 3D printer to keep up with developing new ideas. But this lease takes high portion of our expenses and this is causing many problems such as lack of development for new products and marketing.

We wish to solve this problem through the kickstarter campaign.

Risks and challenges
