Materials: Stamp(s) of your choice that will fit the candle you are using. White tissue paper (may be new and smooth or wrinkled!!!) Versamark or craft pad (pigment ink) can be used. Embossing power (optional) Scrap paper large enough to roll candle on. Heat gun Instructions: 1)Stamp your image onto tissue paper using a dye based ink or Kaleidacolor 1 pad. You may color your image with chalks or, gently, with colored pencils. If you want the image to be embossed, stamp your image with the Versamark or craft pad and then sprinkle on embossing powder and heat with heat gun. Option 1)Another option is to ink up your stamp with a colored pigment ink, such as gold, heat a section of your candle with your heat gun until it is shiny from melting. Impress your inked stamp into the candle, let it cool slightly and then lift the stamp off of the candle. This technique was used on the green candle with the musical note, shown in the image above and to the 2 right. 2) Tear closely next to the edges of the stamped image. This technique looks better than cutting, which sometimes leaves an edge you can still see once adhered to your candle. 3 3) Using a glue stick, put a couple of small swipes of glue onto the back of the stamped tissue paper so it stays put when you begin melting with your heat tool. Position tissue on candle where desired and smooth it into place. 4) Turn heat tool on and move it around until you see the wax begin to melt. It will appear shiny. Continue to move your heat tool around so the entire piece of tissue paper is melted into the candle. Don’t get so close to the candle that it actually bores a hole into it! Make sure to keep a good distance so that it melts somewhat, but doesn’t ruin the candle. NOTE: If the wax begins to puddle or drip, quickly roll your candle back and forth onto your scrap paper and it will smooth right out! 4 5) You will be amazed at how simple it is to create beautiful hand stamped candles! These make great gifts! I like to get small boxes of stick matches, wrap a piece of cardstock around the three sides, so that the edge is still free to strike a match on. Then stamp an image to match your candle. Finish your gift off by wrapping in cellophane or a cellophane bag and tying it closed with a ribbon or raffia bow! You may also heat the lower portion of your candle and then roll it in dried flowers, potpourri, coffee grounds, etc. Try it and let me know how you do! I love to see finished projects from you guys!
