    Step 2

    1. Press the tissue paper perfectly flat using the no-steam setting
    2. Cut the tissue to copy paper size (8 1/2" x 11") and then carefully glue the very edges to a piece of copy paper
    3. On your home computer, print out the images in the size you want on the tissue paper
    *Let the ink dry for a minute
    4. Carefully cut around each image
    5. Using tiny dabs of white school glue, adhere the image to the candle
    6. Using a blow dryer, carefully warm the wax enough to allow the
    tissue paper to adhere to the candle
    *Don't get the wax, too hot. Only a little at a time!
    7. - 9. Embellish the images with Marabu Candle Liners
    *Marabu Candle Liners dry a bit darker than the color and the
    metallic gold looks like liquid gold when it's dry.
