1.   Stamp your image onto tissue paper using the Dovecraft pigment ink; you can use different shades to match your colour theme.  Leave to dry then cut out.

2.   Arrange your image on your candle and then cover with a sheet of waxed paper, ensure you can grip the wax paper tight, and your fingers won’t be near the image when you heat it up.

3.   Hold your heat tool over the image, the heat will melt the tissue paper into the candle, don't hold the heat tool too close to the wax.

4.   Remove the wax paper and your image should be transferred to the candle. Embellish with glitter glue and gems to add interest.
