Woywdw 132

I've been decorating a candle which will sit on the table for christmas.
Here is how i got the stamped images on the candle.
I brought a white candle & had some white tissue paper which i had saved from inside a parcel earlier in the year.
I used Green Tea versa color, Galexy Gold Brilliance inks & Red Sekura gelly roll pen.
The stamps i used are made by Inkadinkado.
I stamped my images onto the white tissue paper & with the red gelly roll pen i added the berries.
This takes no time at all to dry but i left it for 15mins just to be on the safe side, as i've done in the past when i'd done this.
Cut around your stamped images & then one image at a time position this image on the candle.
With a crafters heat gun i carefully used it to very slightly melt the wax which makes the tissue paper wet . This only takes a few seconds to do this with the heat gun & when the wax sets again all your left with is your stamped image & you can't see the tissue paper.
I discoved how to do this on youtube a few years ago. So if your one of those many lovely people who show how  to do this i thank you all.
Here is my finished candle

  14. What a clever way to "transfer" an image to a candle!

  15. Your finished candle is lovely ... I like the way you've coloured the image. I had a go at doing this recently and it really is easier than it looks and they do make nice presents. Have a good week. Elizabeth x #66
