Christmas Candle

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.


Please let me know what you think of it xx

I am yet to do my first candle in this way, i keep putting it off, maybe cause i'm scared of messing it up, ive painted on them before but not this, and for you to do it with the embossing powder too is fantastic, Well Done Joan xxx Hugs, Vick xxx
