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

"Your prices are better on just about everything I need (not everything, but most), and I love that there is no minimum order. I also love the resource of being able to e-mail you and ask questions about the best way to use your products. I'd like to expand into offering all natural body care stuff, but sometimes I have questions. I've been telling anybody who could benefit about this site - it's amazing. Just keep up the good work."
