Candles for Camelford

Today is the big medieval banquet in Camelford and I'm ALMOST ready for it ..... got soaking wet hair but that's a minor point!

Here are some of the candles that I have made to take with me:


This one is coloured for the Passion for Promarkers challenge - I used
Cool Grey 2 and 3 for the stonework,
Pastel Blue for the window,
Cinnamon with Cocoa shading for the table
Cinnamon and Pumpkin with Bright Orange shading for Princess Poppy's Gown and Wimple,
Ivory and Blush for the skin tones
Yellow and Gold for the hair




For these candles I used the tissue paper method, I stamped the Poppy and Paddy images from my designs using Ink It Up Black Dye Ink Pad onto tissue paper and then carefully coloured them with my promarks before attaching them to the candles by placing the tissue paper in position, covering with greaseproof paper and then heating with my heat gun before buffing to a nice finish.
