- Plain glass heat safe container
- Microwavable soy wax
- Chip board letters (or stickers)
- Pre-waxed wick
- Frosted glass spray paint
- White spray paint
- Glue stick
- Painter’s tape
Cover the top of glass with painter’s tape (or simply turn it upside down) and spray with two coats of frosted glass spray paint. Allow to dry for 30 minutes in between coats.
Note: Most ordinary colored spray paint’s are not designed for glass, but frosted glass spray paint is, therefore it acts as a good primer for any subsequent colored spray paint you choose.
Once your two coats of frosted glass paint are dry, spray paint your color coat of choice (seen here is Rustoleum’s Heirloom White). After you’ve sprayed your glass with your colored spray paint, sprinkle glitter into the paint while the paint is still wet.
Remove chipboard letters.
Melt your microwavable soy wax in the microwave and add any colored tint you choose.
If you want to have a white wax but colored letters underneath, then use colored paint designed for glass to paint the inside of the glass before you add your white wax.
Remove your letters and scrape away any residue from the glue stick or paint with a small flathead screwdriver or similar tool.
** I recommend doing the wax last, after you paint.
Melt your microwavable soy wax in a microwave safe glass container (like a Pyrex measuring cup) about 2 to 3 cups at a time. Add tint, then pour into heat safe glass container with a wick. Use a chopstick or similar tool to support your wick as your candle cools.
Once your wax is cooled and your paint and glitter have dried, your candle will look like this. Lovely.
