This molded wax candle of a water lily was etched by wiping paint thinner over the surface of the candle and being allowed to dry. GILDERS® paste wax was applied with a small brush and finger. Colors are Silver (first background), Pinotage (petals), African Bronze (leaves & stems) and Inca Gold (second background) and allowed 30 minutes to dry. Inca Gold was also used to highlight the petals by lightly brushing over the top of the Pinotage colored petals after drying time was complete.
