Digi onto a candle tutorial for CDAC forum

Digital image onto a candle tutorial


  • First & most important part of this tutorial is you MUST have permission from the digital artist to use there image on the candle, because you will be tracing it. (I give permission to use my images on candles)
  • Adjust your image to the size required for the candle & print onto paper or card (you can then later use your printed image to make a matching card?!)
  • Now using white tissue paper. Place the tissue paper over the image & trace around the image using our chosen ink - I used a black gel pen.
  • When you have traced the image, place the tissue paper onto some (normal!) tissue or kitchen roll whilst you colour it. This is because the excess ink (if using pens) goes through the tissue paper & can spoil your image. I have used promarkers to colour mine.
  • Once coloured carefully cut round your image

  • I now like to add a very small amount of glue to the back of the tissue paper to hold the image in place on the candle
  • Now wrap grease proof paper around the candle holding it tight round the back of the candle & carefully heat with your heat gun until you see the image change.
  • If you want to now add any extra decoration eg ribbon or glitter you can. My finished project.

  • Look forward to seeing your projects, so please come share them with us!

Where have you been? I hear you cry!

Where the heck have you been? I hear you cry! Well I am busy working full time on my job (being a mummy) & part time on my fortune!
This is my full time job! He's called Murphy & is now two years old.
Why have I not been crafting? Well I am making some small short term sacrifices for a very huge fantastic long term goal......making memories with this little dude! The time I would have been using to craft I am building a successful international business! This business opportunity is open to anyone & can change your life in ways you never dreamed possible all you have to do is put some work in.
Would you be interested in  supplementing your income,  working from home around current commitments,  how would an extra £200-500 per month help you? What about £800-2000 per month?
DREAM BIG!

Take care everyone....... I am with my healthy wealthy life :-)

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
