These pretty stamped candles are made using Season of Joy.
They are really easy to do and very effective as a demo or class.
First you stamp your image on to regular tissue paper, (the gift wrapping kind). I used the text image from Season of Joy. Trim quite closely around the edge of the image, but don't worry about doing it neatly as this is not seen once finished.
Next place the image on the candle and take a strip of baking parchment/greaseproof paper and hold image tight against the candle - making sure the image is on straight.
Using a heat gun, heat the image through the baking parchment. You need to do this just enough so that the wax melts into the tissue, but no more. Keep checking as different candle wax melts at different rates - usually a minute or two.
I wrapped using the medium cello bags with ribbon and tag stamped with Spotlight on Christmas.
