Hand Stamped Candles

I have accomplished a new technique! I hand stamped these plain white candles I am going to give as door prizes at my upcoming all day crop. They are among a variety of items I plan to give away every hour on the hour. So be sure to come to Dickson Middle School Library February 27th, 2010 from 9am-5pm.

To hand stamp candles you follow these steps:
1. Choose a candle, white is best.
2. Choose your stamp.
3. Cut a piece of white tissue paper that will fit your desired image.
4. Choose your ink color and stamp your image onto the glossier side of the tissue.
5. Cut your image out, does not have to be perfect.
6. Place it on your candle with just a tiny bit of glue.
7. Wrap the candle and image in wax paper with plenty of extra on the back to use to hold onto. Make sure wax paper is smooth where the image is.
8. Use your heat gun to melt the image to the candle…don’t hold gun in one place too long.
9. Gently peel back wax paper and you have stamped your candle!
10. Embellish as desired.
