Candle Polka Dots

Today we are going to make a different kind of art. An art that requires the use of candle and flame. This requires close supervision of an adult. NEVER let your kid do this unsupervised.

Candle Polka Dots

First, I demo to my son how I lit a candle and let the wax drip on the art block.

Once I’m confident that he understands, I let him try.

He then paint the art block with various colours

Light a candle and let the wax drip on the colours.

Use a sponge and paint the whole art block with a darker color. We use black 🙂

Once the paint dries, use a coin to scrape off the candles and you’ll get beautiful dots of colours!

A beautiful work of art 😀

Coming up – See how we use the same technique to create a Christmas themed art 🙂


  1. LOL… should be a good starter to introduce fire into art for my girl!;) Looking forward for the x mas craft!^-^

  2. wow… this is the same procedure we did as we made our “mother’s day Scrath off card”… very nice
    cheers for Ethan and Merryn
