Part 5 
Calligraphy on Candles...

Love Calligraphy? Want to produce an inexpensive gift for someone? Then look no further, here we have calligraphy on candles. It's as simple as that :)  
To produce this fantastic gift idea then read ahead. In FIVE easy steps you can create the above:

1) Buy a plain candle 
2) Get some tissue paper and cut to size of the candle. Then write/draw on the design/wording that you would like. We have used our ZIG Calligraphy Pens, ZIG Calligraphy Metallic pens and Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to create the above design. 
3) Once you are happy with the finished design, place it around the candle and then place some tracing paper over the top and scrunch it at the back of the candle. You will hold it in place by holding onto the scrunched area when heating it with the heat gun. 
4) Turn on your heat gun and hold it over the paper, you will soon see the ink coming through the paper. When this happens you know your done. Remove the paper and voila. 



          

You can create any design on any candle using our Calligraphy pens, just like this one to the left. It was done with the thinner end of the calligraphy pen in black and red. Or have a go at this 'let it snow' candle below...
