Adding stamped images to candles is so easy, simply stamp your image onto tissue paper, then, after roughly cutting out the image, place it onto your candle.
Cut a strip of baking parchment to wrap around the candle to hold the tissue in place and to give you something to hold on to. Use your heat gun to gently melt the skin of the candle and watch the tissue disappear into the molten wax. Take care not to over heat the wax, you do not want it to run. The wax will quickly set again once you remove the heat.
I finished these candle by adding some pretty navy blue polka dot ribbon to the top and bottom and holding it in place with small silver pins.
You are making me slightly anxious by making a start on your Christmas preparations BUT there is no denying that these are stunning. Love the stamp and love the blue. xxReplyDelete
