Penguin Candles

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a quick and easy gift to make for Christmas. I demonstrated this at some recent workshops and have loved seeing what my lovely crafting friends and customers have created with this technique.



If you have never stamped on candles before it is very easy. First stamp your image on tissue paper, (the wrapping tissue sort), colour as required, place on to your candle and cover tightly with wax paper or baking parchment. Next heat the image until the tissue melts into the wax - keep checking and heating until you can't see the tissue. Be careful with the heat gun near your fingers!

I did a little matching gift card, also using Polar Party stamps, Stazon ink and Island Indigo, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight markers. Happy candle stamping!

Love Elizabeth X
