"Celebrations" brings the second theme - Christmas Candles

After having a rewarding experience with my first theme - "Diwali Candles" and the booth sales, I am coming up with the next theme - "Christmas Candles".

Take a sneak peak on right hand side (slide show).
Note- you can click on the slide show to see enlarged view of slide show

In this experiment of colors, I have tried out Acrylic paints directly on the candle. My first one was the Poinsettia. Came out really good and I was happy with the results - so Experiment Successful!!

I am going to use 2 different sizes of candles - 3" diameter and 3" height'; 3" diameter and 6" height. The candles are white color and unscented. I have used acrylic color straight from the bottle without any medium. Once I was satisfied with the painting, I coated it with protective top coat with glitter to give it a festive look.
It takes me about 3 hours to paint a candle, a very relaxing and happy experience!!
I am going to try out 50 such candles at least and if possible with unique designs. I want to put out a series - "Christmas Everywhere". I have tried 2 such candles - one with Santa on the house and second with Tinker Bell decorating christmas tree. I have few other crazy ideas. If you have any suggestions I would be happy to try out! The second set of candles will be different floral designs like the poinsettia...
Having said all that, I must now get to work :)
