Stamped images on a candle Tutorial

I cannot take credit for this tutorial so I have linked back to it's creator Jenni Mouer , but it is truly amazing so I thought I would share it with you, its so comprehensive I think I will give it a try.

Stamped Candles

by Jenni Mouer



Candle - preferably white or cream

White Tissue Paper


Ink Pads

Markers or some other type of coloring medium


Wax Paper

Embossing Gun

Step By Step

Step 1

Step 1.
Stamp on tissue paper. Use images that can be colored-in or solid images, in the ink color of your choice.

Tip: Stamp extra images on the tissue in case of a mistake.

Step 2

Step 2.
Color in stamped images using some form of coloring medium, but be careful and test the medium used. With Twinkling H2O™s™ (as in this example), you will want to make sure your Aquabrush™ is not very wet but has a fair amount of watercolor on it. If you would prefer not to color just use a solid stamp with your choice of ink.

Step 3

Step 3.
Cut out your stamped images fairly close to the edges.

Step 4

Step 4.
Take a piece of wax paper and cut it so that it is not any taller than the candle being used and long enough so that it wraps completely around the candle and then some.

Step 5

Step 5.
Take your first stamped image and place it on the candle. Then place the wax paper on top and wrap the wax paper around the candle. Wing out the extra wax paper and pinch close with your fingers making sure the wax paper is tight against the candle.

Step 6

Step 6.
Heat up your embossing gun for 30-40 seconds until it is nice and hot. Moving quickly, wave it over the area where the stamped image is; be sure to keep the wax paper nice and tight. Every candle will have a different wax melting point, but you should see a change begin to take place within a few seconds. As the candle heats up, the pressure from the wax paper should push the image into the melting wax of the candle, embedding the image and leaving your image intact.

Slowly peel the wax paper off the candle. Remember: every brand is different so if you are switching between brands you may need to adjust your heating times a bit.

Step 7

Step 7.
Finish your candle.

You can do numerous images on one candle; just place another image and move the wax paper. It is best to try and not use the same spot on the wax paper for each image, but you can use 1 piece of wax paper numerous times.

Update: Jackie from Docrafts has used greaseproof paper instead of the wax paper and she says that it works just fine she has just finished a large batch of these candles for her wedding.

Thanks Jackie

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
