Candles

A couple of years ago I learned this fab trick from Tim Holtz' blog. You take a picture of a candle and cover the candle with glossy accents. Once dry, it looks like real wax.



This image was sent to me by a friend on Docrafts and I coloured it using distress markers before using the glossy accents trick.

 

From this angle, you can see the waxy shine on the candle.
