Stamped Candle for Xmas

 

P7310137

This candle was decorated using a Stamptivity stamp called Father Christmas with Holly2. I stamped the image in black dye ink and then chalked in the subtle colors. Then I cut out the image and Mod Podged it onto the candle. PLEASE NOTE!!! Mod Podge is not safe for a flame and the stamp is stamped on PAPER so do not light your candle if you intend to decorate it like this!!! I just made it as a Christmas decor, not to be lit, but to be kept for many years to come. Instructions are below.

Level:Intermediate
Time Needed: 30 minutes

Supplies Needed:
Father Christmas with Holly 2 stamp
Blending chalks
Candle
Mod Podge or other paper sealer
Foam Brush
Cutting Tool
Black Ink Pad
White cardstock

SPECIAL NOTE: Mod Podge and other sealers are NOT safe to be close to a lit candle. These candles are intended for decorations only and should not be lit.

Instructions:
1.Stamp the Father Christmas stamp on white cardstock using black ink.
2.Color in the stamped image with blending chalks.
3.Cut out around the stamped image.
4.Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back side of the cut out image. Let the paper set for a minute so the sealer will bond well to the paper.
5.Attach the paper to the candle making sure to smooth the paper down completely. This can be done with a brayer, bone folder edge, or credit card egde.
6.Once there are no air bubbles, apply a thin coat over the stamped image to seal it.
