  • writing on cnadles

    How do I add writing to candles.
    i am looking at making favours for my sisters wedding and she's said she likes the idea of writing dates etc onto small candles.

    You could get candle pens which are liquid wax and can write and draw with them (they are not fine tiped though).

    What you could also do is Decorative film that you put through your inkjet printer. I will attach a link to this. You don't need to go to full moons you can search the web for what you want but it is a point you can start from.

    Hope this helps.

        Everyone has helped me on here loads of time so just nice to return the favour.

        I think you just get 1 sheet of A4 for the decorative film so if you are going to use that for the favours I would put lots of the names and things and run off a test sheet on A4 - get as many in as you can.

        All the best.

          I recommend :

          (www) dot craftycomputerpaper dot co dot uk

          They do a water-slide inkjet paper :

          " These are the papers you need if you want to apply your decals to any non-porous surface but don't need to put the finished object in the dishwasher. (You can hand-wash them in hot soapy water without the images fading or flaking off.) Our 'water-slide' papers are a 'dream come true' for model-makers: now you can make unique decals for all your trains, boats, planes, die casts, remote control models and the like. They're also perfect for transfers onto wood that has been painted or sealed, glass, plastics and melamine (for decorative plates, for example), soap and metal objects: no need to buy different papers for different surfaces. And if you fancy making the most stunning personalised candles they're ideal for transfers onto wax too: the candles will burn normally - if you can bear to watch your creations disappear, that is! "


          They really do have papers and decals for everything and I've recommended them 3 times on the forum now so I'm going to ask them if I can get some commission!!

            Will need to have a look see. Do they melt along with the Candles because you would really need that to happen or they will look pretty naff when they are burning (and I have seen my fair share of duffers In can tell you).

            Cheers will have a look.

              I've never used them personally as I don't make candles, but I do use other craftycomputerpaper products and have never had any problems. It does say "if you can bear to watch your creations disappear" so I guess it does burn with the candle.
