Recently, our shop has received an order for candles decorated with stones and mosaics. The work was very laborious, but the result was worth it. Both the process and the end result of it were very interesting. That wanted to be happy to share with you this technique of decorating.
First, wrap a candle bilateral adhesive tape.
Then, without removing to the end, but only turning (distance necessary) protective layer tape, glue squeezing “Moment. Mounting. Liquid Nails”.
Now carefully smeared glue. The adhesive layer should not be too thick, but it is not necessary to be greedy candles. An exemplary adhesive layer should be 2 mm.
Further, in the adhesive layer can be placed (Your imagination will tell you in what order to place) stones or mosaic.
So, glued and decorated the whole candle
Then (very important ), the entire structure must be completely dry. (After drying, the adhesive becomes almost transparent). This will happen within 24 hours. Well, no, we have time, we will wait. Only after the final drying, you can take a candle in hand, or carried out with the decor further manipulations without fear
Our client had needed some color. Such stones and mosaics, at the time of purchase of them
material, was not in stores. What to do? The orders got to be made efficiently and on time.
It was then, and come to the aid of our favorite acrylic paint and flat brushes made of synthetics.
Every stone and mosaic had to be painted in different colors of pastel colors (if you accidentally hit the paint between the stones, just take acrylic white, and paint-stained seats). It is better not to be lazy and to paint a mosaic of pebbles or 2 times.
Exciting work is finished. Look from all sides. And what do we see? It turned out something is not bad
The final result.
