I finally "get" instant coffee!

A lot of the prim tutorials out there call for instant coffee.  While I use it for staining muslin, I just wasn't understanding what it would do to candles.  Then I tried it and am impressed with the results!  I bought three battery flicker pillars on sale at the hardware store.  They were only $1.99 each and they actually work!  I didn't have modge podge, so I just coated the candle with white craft glue, then rolled the candle in instant coffee with a little cinnamon mixed in.  Here is my results.  Now I want to 'instant coffee' everything!  The boys would look so prim. LOL

  5. Ouuu... I love the candles. Great Idea. never thought of it. I hope you won't mind if I try it.
    Glad you are taking a break., we all need it. I am baking bread today and was vaccumming until the belt broke. A good reason to take a break. Have to wait till I can get to Wally world to get another belt.
    Anyway. love the candles.

  6. YEA! ! !
    You figured it out. Now I can give my hand a try at it. I have been wondering how to primitiveize so many of my candles. Love them. Good Job Lori.


I appreciate and look forward to each and every comment!
