Feedback From Past Tutorials
Brenda has a suggestion for Stamping on Candles: "Another tip that made a BIG difference in my candles is to let the candle cool a few minutes BEFORE you remove the waxed paper. This lets the candle wax stay nice and smooth. Also, I roll mine on a hard surface as soon as I shut the heat gun off. No drips that way if maybe you heated it too long. Also you can copy an image from a picture or newspaper clipping and put on a candle. I frequently do this with the wedding announcements/invitations. Just print it out on a plain piece of paper first, then tape the tissue in the area you printed, and print again. It will then be printed on the tissue and you can proceed with putting it on the candle in the usual way. I have never had any problem with the computer ink running or anything. These make great gifts."
