Hey there! The last project I have to share from my Night in Bethlehem presentation at Vacation Stamping School is a set of candles I stamped with the set:
To "stamp" on a candle is really very easy. You don't stamp directly on the curved side of the candle. Instead, you stamp your images on ordinary tissue (wrapping) paper that you have cut in a strip long enough to go all the way around the candle and just slightly as wide as the candle is tall.
I stamped my images all together on the white tissue paper first, then wrapped the tissue around the candle. I then wrapped a piece of waxed paper tightly over the tissue paper. I held both layers tightly around the candle while using my Heat Tool to quickly heat/melt the tissue paper onto the candle surface. The wax on the waxed paper helps to seal the tissue/images onto the candle. After heating as far as I could with the first piece of waxed paper, I wrapped a second piece of waxed paper around the candle, holding it tight from the side already heated to melt and seal the rest of the tissue/images.
After I finished heat-setting the tissue on to the candles I tied Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon into a bow around each one.
"Stamping" on candles has been around for ages, but it's fun to re-visit oldie-but-goodie techniques with new products!
