Next I gathered some plain white candles, and a couple fall cutouts...that I cut out of scrapbook paper.
Next I started painting with the wet wax on the white candle till the entire candle was painted. I had to work quick, the air conditioner was on (in the 100's here in So. Cal.), so the wax hardened quicker. I painted the candles then where the wax was wet I attached the crow or pumpkin and quickly painted was under the sides and then over the top to hold it down. Next time I think I would just glue down the piece or maybe use a large scrapbook sticker.
This crow went on pretty easily, it was cut out of cardstock. Obviously I won't be lighting these candles just using them for decoration.
I kept painting and painting with the wax till it was fully covered.
But the final candle for the pumpkin I really liked, I'm not sure about the crow candle. Not sure how I would do it different. I just wanted grubby and prim looking candles for the fall season.
The grubby candle with cinnamon smells amazing and I really like it on the little candle holder I made.
If you have any ideas on how to do this better, PLEASE tell me, I would love to try this again with better results.
Thanks for coming by,
