I don’t know about fried ones…
…it’s a delightfully artistic fart!
Initially, we experimented with sprinkling paint on tapering candles. Most paints are either too flammable or not flammable enough. okay.
Then I saw some black tape with wax and next, if I could paint it instead! Well… it worked!
…mostly… the white wax doesn’t show up on black candles. 😉
The black came out beautifully on the white candles…but with almost a different gray gradation.
I think this idea will work for color arrangement as well. Make sure the candle you are “painting” is lighter than the one that bounces. Also… avoid red scattered candles except around Halloween. just. 😉
- Light colored candles used white.
- Black* was used for dark colored candles.
*Please double check that the candle is completely dyed. Sometimes white candles are dipped in colored wax and only the outer layer is dyed. You can also use crayons… I haven’t tried it yet, but I’d love to try it!
I found both white and black candles at Michael’s.
- Place brightly colored candles on a protected surface. I’ve used wax paper, but newspapers work well too. No need to space them. We’ll turn them around to get all the sides.
- Light a dark-colored candle and burn it until the wax begins to drip.
- Use your fast wrist to splatter the dark wax into the light candle. The wax cools and dries very quickly!
- Light a brightly colored candle and repeat this process until the desired shape is achieved. I found that I could get a darker splatter by waiting for a large amount of wax to melt.
I think they would make a good gift too. It can also be used with candlesticks.
Oh… I think rainbow tempura on my birthday would be fun too. There are a lot of spatter marks. Jason Pollock style. Can I use melted crayons? It’s fun, it’s fun!
My husband said this white and black look like birch branches from a distance. What do you think?
