Painting with Wax
Make up a wax paint with 1 part melted paraffin and 3 1/2 parts turpentine. Let the mixture sit for a few days so the turpentine can evaporate leaving a pasty wax paint. Add candle dye and apply to a candle base with a paint brush. Overdip the candle to protect the paint job.
Candles can also be painted with regular acrylic paints. You can use brush techniques or sponging techniques or even stencils. You can protect your painting with an overdipped coat.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
