I treated myself to some candle paints and some stencils the other week, and this is what I got up to, on some cheap candles from one of the pound shops.
and here they are in close up:
|Using a stencil - first view|
|masked with tape for the stripes|
|Using stars from a stencil|
|splodgy effect on the other side|
Having done the first three, I then went in search of any other candles around the house that I could paint!
|A burgundy square candle with stencilled swirls|
|created a mask from a die, and painted this candle - because of the colour of the candle the wording didn't |
show up that well so over-painted it that with white and added a few splodges to the candle
|Reverse side - another mask cut from a die, and before it didn't show up that well, so it was over-painted with white |
and a gold centre stippled on
