Armadilla Wax Works Candle Factory


    The first thing people often ask us is about our name. You’ll notice that we misspelled armadillo by changing the “o” to an “a”. The reason is that one of the original members lived for a time in Texas and it seemed appropriate to use the Texas pronunciation. Plus we loved the music from The Armadillo World Headquarters. We still have a connection to Texas in that one of our beautiful Granddaughters was born in Dallas and one of our sons and his son live in Austin.

    The  candles you see on our web site are the result of the evolution of ideas and experimentation. The wax tanks have changed from a wide and deep tank to allow us to dip 36″ taper candles to smaller, more portable rolling tanks that we now use for smaller batches of wax for the detailed color changes in the floating candles. Just so you know, all of our designs are original and all of our candles are poured in molds that we have made.
