Step 1

Pick what part of the napkin you wish to use. I have cut the border off to use, then added a chicken. Go around the picture with a small paintbrush that has water on to make it easier to tear around. Then separate the sheets. You only want the top layer with picture on it.

Step 2

Position it onto the candle then wrap around your wax sheet.

Step 3

Then use your choice of hairdryer or heat gun. Don't hold it too close to the candle, and start from the middle moving it about. Don't hold it in one spot for too long. You can see through the paper as the image is being sealed by wax. You can also pull back the paper to check you haven't missed any bits.

Step 4

Keep doing this until you are happy with the design.
