Crafter's Companion - Candle

This candle turned out lovely! It was simply done too! First
I took some plain tissue paper and stamped my image. Then, using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers colored it. 
Colored pencils will work too. 

Once finished, I carefully tore out the image...closer to the image the better.
  I took the image and held it to the candle where I wanted it. Taking some wax paper, a large enough piece to wrap around the candle in order to hold the tissue in place.

Using my heat gun I began to apply heat to the image. Don't over heat the candle or it will melt it. You just want to heat it enough to watch the tissue edges disappear. Smooth it by rubbing the wax paper. Once smoothed, with all tissue edges melted gently into the wax, you're finished.
