The images were stamped onto the tissue paper and colored with the Marvelous Markers to make them vibrant and colorful. They were then cut around the images as close as possible and carefully laid out on the candle in strategic places to make this fun birthday design! (You have to color in VERY carefully, so you don't make a hole in your tissue paper!) After placing image on candle where you want it, cover image with wax paper and wrap tightly around candle. Keep wax paper tight! Heat with heat tool until the image starts to disappear (just like when you emboss!) The image is melting into the wax! Turn off heat tool and slowly peel off the wax paper to reveal your beautiful image on your candle! (If you have a large or long piece of tissue paper, do small sections at a time and shift your wax paper to a new section so you don't get "run-off" of wax). If there are any areas that aren't fully melted, repeat the process with a clean area of the wax paper, remembering to hold it TIGHT!

I just really love making candles! I make them at every class I do, and you should see the faces light up when they see their creations for the first time! It's AMAZING! It's my favorite thing to do. Next is cards, then scrapping.
Thanks for enjoying my gallery! I only have a few (okay, maybe 15 -20) to post! :-D
Have a happy stampin' day!
