Baby candle

This is my first attempt at candle stamping, it was so much easier than I thought it would be.
All you need to do is stamp an image on white tissue paper (I used stazon ink) and colour the image in,
then cut round the image close to the edges.
Place the image where you want it on the candle and then wrap greaseproof paper around the candle.
Using a heat gun heat up the image until you see the wax melt across the whole image. (the greaseproof paper goes translucent)
then just roll the candle on a hard surface to make sure the surface is even and unwrap the paper.
the image will have now melted into the candle.
I think I am going to make quite a few more of these, as they will make lovely personalised presents.
