Waxing Lyrical

candlecandle Once upon a time there was a crafter who thought it would be fun to decorate candles. Now the mat she used is covered with candle wax and her thumbs are very hot. candlecandlecandlecandlecandlecandle
I suppose it is a new form of waxing as the hair was burned off my hands.
Now...the heat buddy has a wide nozzle hence the hands nearly going on fire as the hot air (or hair) covered a large area so it had to be changed to my blue narrow nozzle heat gun.  Also it is good to have an extra long piece of greaseproof paper...a plastic clothes peg is not really any help, just in case anyone is thinking of trying it. The coated candles had a life of their own and melted all over the place as you will see in the flower sample...I think it got sunstroke as decoration was taking place.
Can anybody suggest asbestos gloves size 6?
However, it was challenging and fun and will be mastered once I get the overheated hands sorted. If you see me over the next few days with bandages on both hands you will know I have not been successful.Candle stamping results
They say decorated stamped candles can be used as presents...my craft friends would  really appreciate them as a gift. By the end of the year I should have mastered it.
