Deep rich colors on candles!

Several followers have requested information as to how I get the colors to stay rich and vibrant on my candles.  Stamp with Stazon Ink onto tissue paper, I color skin tones and basic colors with Copics, however, afterwards I dry brush some of the desired edges and corners of the image with Ranger Distress Ink onto the tissue paper.  


When the copics alone were used I found that the colors when melting with the hot air tool, they turn out very light and get diluted into the candle.  With the Distress ink, the color lays more on the top of the paper and stays strong where you want it.




On the 16 of November Whimsy Stamps  released fabulous new rubber stamps and dies.  I have been showcasing these awesome new goodies, along with the rest of the fabulous DT and special guests.  These candles are perfectly simple and make a delightful gift too!


If you have made something using one of the new release stamps and/or dies, please send Whimsy a link as we would love to see your creation!
