Shall we make them special?
You will need a few sheets of gold leaf and a bottle of
All available in any craft store.
Size (rabbit skin glue) comes in small bottles.
Pour a small amount of glue into a plastic container.
Brush on glue to lower part of candle.
Wait about 30 minutes until glue is slightly tacky.
Stays tacky for several hours.
Lay gold leaf sheets onto candle.
Polish with soft cloth or sheepskin.
While you wait for the glue to dry on candles why not gild a few acorns...it's the same technique.
After gilding the candle you can scribe a scrolling pattern into the goldleaf with the handle of a paint brush.
See how special. A few candles with gold leaf, a few pomanders, and fresh greens and a centerpiece is born.
Thank you dear friends for stopping by. I am always so happy to hear from you.
