Decorated candle tutorial

A Few weeks ago I decorated a candle using a gorgeous Robyn's fetish image, I have used this same image to make this tutorial. I will try to give enough details in this post but if you have any questions please either ask in the comments or email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

What you will need
A pillar candle
a stamped image, hand stamped or digi on cheap copy paper.
some pens or pencils to colour the image

Step one.

Print out your digi or stamp your image onto a piece of cheap copy paper and colour it with your chosen pens/pencils, once this is done roughly cut it out.

Step two

place the image onto the candle in the position you want it to be, as you will be heating it up use something to hold it in place to prevent burning your fingers.

Step three

Use your heat tool, or hair dryer to heat up the candle pressing your image into it, you will see the image get a little darker when this happens you know that the wax underneath it has melted sticking to the image.

Step 4

Once the image is attached to the candle you can add some bling to it, on the first candle I added stick on gems, this time I am using a strip of bling and heating it into the candle.

Step five

Tie a piece of ribbon on the bottom of the candle to finish it off.

OMG you are just amazing! Thank you from the bottom of my old crusty heart for this tut, I have always wondered how it was done. I did one, one time in a little different way and I did not like how it turned out, that was a year ago and haven't tried it since. But now I must go fined me a pillar candle! Love you girly!
