Painting with Wax

Make up a wax paint with 1 part melted paraffin and 3 1/2 parts turpentine. Let the mixture sit for a few days so the turpentine can evaporate leaving a pasty wax paint.  Add candle dye and apply to a candle base with a paint brush.  Overdip the candle to protect the paint job. 

Candles can also be painted with regular acrylic paints.  You can use brush techniques or sponging techniques or even stencils.  You can protect your painting with an overdipped coat. 

Customer Testimonial

"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
