Digi Images on a candle Character Cafe Tutorial

Good Morning to you all,
Its time for another Character Cafe Tutorial by me, (lilacanglia)
This week I am going to show you how to digi image onto a candle,
the materials you will need are
candle,
Digi Image (I used Character Cafe's Dayzee)
Greaseproof Paper,
Tissue Paper,
pens/colours
PERMISSION FROM THE DIGI OWNERS TO COPY THE IMAGE


I printed of the Dayzee image the size to fit my candle,
then I traced it onto the tissue paper,
coloured it with my whisper pens.
Cut Dayzee out roughly with a edging to her like in the photo below.

You then place the image where you want it,

Wrap with greaseproof then put heat gun on to warm up a little,
before running the heat over the images edges,


Take of the greaseproof paper and see if the edges of your image have melted into the candle,
it is easier to do less time with your heat gun then do it again instead of melting the candle with to much heat the first time.

Here is my finished result.

Thanks for stopping by
Hope to see you back on Friday.
Hugs
Angie

Great idea, Angie. I've done candles similar to this before but I've never used the greaseless paper. I'll have to try that! Hope you are feeling better. Take care!
