I bought 3 of these led Candles, with the intention of just stencilingFinials on each... That didn't work out, I could not get these labels off, I tried all the tricks, and they just weren't budging. I think the paper melted into the fake wax, yuk.
I gave up and just painted them, and I love how they turned out!
I was mixing a batch of homemade chalk paint, and it was way too thick, but befor I added water, I thought I'd try this "chunky" formula. It went on well and I liked the sort of grungy look it gave the candles.
So, I guess this is one of those times when frustration turns to satisfaction.
The candle sticks I picked up at the thrift store, they were gold. I used white chalk paint, then applied a layer of this beautiful light aqua, and 2nd coat of the same aqua. After it dried I lightly sanded with a sandpaper sponge to reveal some of the gold, then I applied wax, I used a toothbrush to get into all the nooks and crannies. Then buffed it up with a clean dry cloth and a clean tooth brush, I love the finish a good coat of wax gives the chalk paint.
And just for fun a picture of my Vintage Camera
