To Embellish an Existing Pillar Candle With a Mosaic Easter Bunny you will need:
3 Pastel Colored Candle Waxes (or Crayons)
Easter Bunny Cookie Cutter
2 Glass bowls
Now the first step is to Melt the three colors of candle wax or crayons. Do each in its own bowl. You can do this by simply microwaving the on high for 15 seconds at a time in a glass dish. Microwave in intervals until the wax sis melted.
Now, pour the first pastel colored melted wax into a glass dish lightly coated with silicone spray. Be sure the wax is not thicker than 1/8 inch thick. If you make the wax embellishments too thick they will look silly sticking out on your pillar candle.
Once this sets you can pour in the second pastel Easter color.
Repeat one final time with the third pastel wax color. Try to make three wide stripes.
Once the wax in the glass dish is solid but still soft you can spray silicone onto an Easter Bunny cookie cutter and press it into the soft wax. This is just like cutting out your Easter Bunny cookie cutters and every simple to do. You should not burn your and, but the wax will be warm to the touch.
Remove the excess wax from around the shape with a knife. You can trim any little details you need to at this point. Whiskers and eyes would be nice. You could also use a needle or wooden skewer to poke out any open holes or design in the Mosaic Easter Bunny embellishment. Now, allow the wax Mosaic Easter Bunny shape to cool completely.
Once the tri colored bunny wax shape is cooled you need to fill one bowl with hot water and one with cold water.
Put your Mosaic Easter Bunny shaped wax cut out in the hot water to soften it up. While soft wrap the wax cut out around the pillar candle so that the curves of the candle match exactly to your wax cut out design.
Now, immediately put the Mosaic Colored Easter Bunny wax cut out in cold water so it will hold the curves. I like to put a few ice cubs in my cold water. This helps the curved wax cutout immediate.
Dip your paintbrush into the some more hot wax you have melted in a separate small glass bowl. Paint it onto the back of the curves wax Mosaic Easter Bunny shape. This will be the glue that holds the Easter cut out onto your existing pillar candle. Use some hot wax to adhere the wax cut out design to the pillar candle.
The candle is done.
