Print and size your chosen artwork so that it will fit on your candle. Cut a sheet of tissue paper to fit over the template. Sure to a flat surface with tape or secure tissue to template with paper clips.

Use a sharpie or felt tips to trace the template onto the tissue paper, I went for a black/white style but you can use colour too.

Cut out the tissue design leaving a small edge around the perimeter of the design.

Use the hairdryer on high heat to heat up the design until you see the paper stick to the wax. The tissue should go a translucent colour as the wax melts.

Pat down any edges that might not be flat and leave to cool down.
