Making an Embossed Candle is fun and the results can be stunning. Cathy from the USA asked me how it to make one. Thank you for the question, Cathy!
"I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn't have one.
So I got a cake".
There are a couple of ways I know of to make an embossed candle.
You can get some pretty glitter glues these days and they would look nice using this method. Using plain glue is good too as you can paint it afterwards.
Another way to emboss candles is to embed 3-d objects into them. You can choose natural shapes such as shells or leaves, being careful again not to choose anything flammable.
You can also use objects such as bone buttons (plastic ones might melt or catch fire) sequins, beads or glitter. Again, be sure you know if the objects will catch fire or not.
TIP: If you just want a decorated candle that is never burnt, trim the wick down to its very base, making sure none is left above the wax, certainly not enough to be lit. Then it will not matter what your embellishments are made of.
I hope this information helps you get the Embossed Candle finish you are after.
