This Blue whale candle holder is handmade out of polymer clay. It is coated with high quality glaze to protect it from some harm. It is dusted with a sparkly powder to add shimmer. This figure is a fun addition to any ocean lover's birthday cake or cupcakes. The figure is about 1/2'' tall. The figure you receive may look slightly different than the ones pictured as it is made to order. This candle holder comes with the candle shown in the photos. If you would like a custom color or embellishment I'm happy to create a customized version! Please allow 5-7 days creation time before shipment. I ship with the United States Postal Service (USPS), First Class shipping. My shipping materials are mostly recycled. Thanks for looking!
