This is my very first attempt at decorating a candle. I have to say I am quite pleased with it. The photo does not do it justice.
Using versamark I stamped an image (one of a set that I was given by Elaine for my birthday) on to the mat side of a piece of regular tissue paper.. I then used some fine detail antique gold embossing powder from Joanna Sheen, then very carefully heated it. I then wrapped the image around large candle. Then wrapped this with a sheet of parchment paper. Then heated it until I could see it change colour. I then removed the parchment and buffed up the candle with a clean soft cloth, and voila.
