Decorated Candles


Been playing with something different but didn't want to post before now cos its a gift for someone and didn't want them to see before it was posted.


The flowery one is rub-ons, which took a little bit of 'gentle persuasion' to adhere to the candle and the dreamcatcher one is rubber stamps, stamped with black pigment ink and a little colour added with H2Os and then put onto the candle - burnt my fingers on the heat gun a couple of times lol but I'm pleased with the results - just hope the recipient is as its the first time I've stamped onto candles!!!
