Decorated candles using Mod Podge ® or Royal Coat ® Decoupage Finish are meant for decorative purposes and not for illumination. Many of the decorations would catch fire and be hazardous if the candle were burned. However, if you are using a wide pillar candle and the decorations do not go to the top of the candle, it can be burned down slightly to create a well, then a votive candle inserted into the well. A new votive candle can be inserted when the old one is finished. Use extreme caution and good judgment when burning candles that have been decorated.
First check to see if the napkin is 2 ply. If so, separate and lay aside. Brush Mod Podge directly on the your surface. Carefully place the printed napkin on the surface and lightly blot down with a dampened sponge. Start blotting in the center and work to the edge. Once it is in place, let dry. After about 30 minutes lightly apply a top coat of Mod Podge.
  1. Apply a coat of Mod Podge® to the inside of the form and allow to dry slightly. Place the Napkin design where desired and gently rub it flat with your thumb.
  2. Cover the image with a second very thin coat of Mod Podge®, beginning in the center and brushing out. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  3. Add special sponging or spouncing effects, as desired, around the design and let dry.
  4. Paint the whole inside with a light color of FolkArt® Acrylic Colors. If you want to use a darker color inside, first paint around the Napkin design with a light color, let dry and then add the darker color.
