Cut out your foil transfer design from the transfer sheet, remove the backing and place onto a sheet of tissue paper
Top Tip – You will get the best result if you match the colour of the tissue paper to your candle so that it doesn’t show when melted into the candle
Gently rub the transfer sheet with the lollipop stick being careful not to rip the tissue paper around the edges. Leave the transfer sheet in place and turn the tissue paper over.
Using your Spectrum Noir Pens gently colour in the flower petals and leaves. Be very gentle and just lightly touch the pens against the tissue paper. You do not want to flood the area or the tissue paper will break. Start with your lighter colour and then add the darker one on top.
You will not be able to blend in the traditional way so keep looking at the right side of the tissue paper to see if you are happy with the colours.
When you have finished colouring cut the piece of tissue paper down so that it leaves approximately a 1cm edge around your design.
Remove the transfer sheet and place a piece of foil on top of the tissue paper. Gently rub the foil and peal back slowly to reveal your design.
Put a small dab of glue onto the corners of the tissue paper and position it onto your candle. The glue will help it stay in place. Add a sentiment, again using tissue paper.
Take a piece of wax paper and wrap it around your candle. You will need a long enough piece to be able to hold onto.
You will need to be fairly quick with this next part to ensure the wax paper doesn’t get stuck to your design. Using your heat gun heat the area on and around your designs. You will notice that the wax from the wax paper will start to melt and will have a sheen like appearance, keep going until you have heated around all of the design. Gently peel back the wax paper. The tissue paper should have melted onto the candle completely but if you find you have any areas that haven’t just reapply your wax paper and reheat this section.
Top Tip – If you find any wax paper has stuck to your design just gently reheat the area with your heat gun to release it.
If you would like to make a base for your candle you can do so by using the packaging that comes with your Foils & Transfers and a piece of Centura Pearl Card.
You will need to measure & cut two 4” x 4” squares, one from the Purple card and one from Centura Pearl Card. Using the Big Score, score all four sides of the purple card against the ‘Box Lid’ side at the 5/8” mark. Repeat this with the Centura Pearl Card but against the ‘Box Base’ side. Cut little ‘v’ marks as shown here
Take the purple card and either die cut a circle in the centre or draw a circle and cut it out (use the candle to draw around to get a perfect size).
Make up the box and decorate and place your candle inside.
Top Tip – If your candle is sitting too low you can layer a couple of piece of card inside the box to give it a little more height.
