Cheshire Cat Candle

The image used for this candle is Cheshire Cat by Dr. Digi House of Stamps.

I coloured Cheshire Cat digitally and printed on acetate to make my candle wrapper.  I decorated a lot of candles in the past using the more traditional method of using tissue paper for my colouring and then using a heat tool to place the image onto the wax candle.  Guilt got the better of me and I stopped doing this a few years ago as at that time I was giving talks to new hires of the company my hubby was employed by in the Middle East on fire safety.  On our return to the UK I discovered wax battery operated candles and have been trying to place images on them in the traditional way but am not have any great success so now I am playing around with using acetate to make a candle wrapper as there is no worry regarding fire hazard.

This is what the image looked like before it was placed on the candle

You can see how the yellow/ivory colour of the candle changes the end image so I am now hunting out white battery operated candles :) wish me luck in finding them hahaha.
