But here a photo with a light colored background works better. Begin by sizing your photo using a photo editing software to the desired size and then print it on a color laser printer to get a color copy. Take a large heavy duty packaging tape to cover the photo completely. Peel the paper off the back of the photo by submerging it in water for time. After all the paper fibers are removed stick the photo on the glass.
Another way to make customized candles is to make them in any color and shape using a silicon mold, wax and candle wick. Pour melted wax into the mold adding layers of multiple colors for detailing. Examples of such candles are in the shape of an Iron Man
Thus a candle with a personal touch can make a great gift which the receiver is sure to cherish.
