As the original artwork is composed of Legos, this is visible in the printing, giving it a pixelated look.

Please note: We recommend trimming the wick to 1/4 inch or less before each lighting. If the flame flickers continuously or smokes, trim the wick slightly shorter. To maximize the lifetime of your candle, allow the wax to fully melt across the surface before extinguishing. To preserve the fragrance and to ensure a clean burning candle, burn no longer than a few hours at a time.
