Copic Colored Candle


I haven't made an altered candle in years, so I figured I'd give it a whirl again using my Kandi Corp Hot Wax Tool and some Copic markers.


First I cut a sheet of regular printer paper to fit the candle and stamped it with an image from Mixed Blooms which I colored with Copic Markers. I then heated up my Hot Wax Tool with the spade tip. This tip works pretty much like an iron and you can hold it on the paper and let the wax seep through it. I went over mine twice so I'd have quite a bit of was built up over the paper. I then added dots of black beeswax to the top and bottom of the candle for a little added decor.


Thanks for looking!
