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.
