    I did mine on cardboard, and the hot glue at the bottom did stick.
    I let it dry and them pealed it off the cardboard and then pulled off any extra cardboard. Once painted it didnt matter if there was some cardboard stuck on the bottom side.

    These were so easy to make. I went and bough some more pipe. I hope to find time to make more this weekend.

    TIP:
    I found white colored PVC pipe that the tea candle fits right inside without having to drill out any of the pipe. One less step and no power tools required. I think it was a lower grade PVC pipe. The wall of the pipe is thinner.

    My glue gun came with a silicone pad to rest the tip on & I used that to sit the candle on & puddle glue around the bottom on the pad. Once dried it came right off.

    PVC Flicker Candles
    Hey guys...can't believe how monstrous this thread has gotten. I just wanted to post a quick update to my original candles. I wanted to add some more detail this year so I added some more depth by painting the candles to look aged. Thanks goes to HiRez for the idea!

    I used Liquitex Basics Raw Umber paint which you can get at Joann's or Micheal's in different sizes. Just applied the paint to the candle and took a damp paper towel and wiped off the excess. All the paint that the towel doesn't hit gets left behind and really adds some depth of detail to the candle.

    Those look great! I painted some black and the newest ones I did for my tombstones this past Halloween I didn't have enough time to paint. I will have to do this for those cause I really like the look of them. Thanks for sharing!

    Greetings all,

    For anyone interested, I just posted some photos of some new PVC candles I did for a Pirate Chandelier in another section of this site. So as to not double post, here is the link: My first prop of the season ... Pirate Wagon Wheel Chandelier

    I explain some "new" tricks (at least new to me) as to how to get long drips with sticking.

    Hope you find this information useful.

    Ack, maybe I should have posted this before 40k views..

    ...Let me save everyone 20 hours or so, and share the secret to roll your PVCcandles in an acrylic based white mortar mix. It will coat the whole pipe so it does not look like plastic. Then, do your goops, and drips by dipping the end of the pipe into the mortar mix, and letting it dribble down the pipe.. After it drys go back with more dipping and dribbles to get the perfect look. It is also highly suggested that you bundle several candles together with jute, so that your placing a cluster of candles together rather than singles... Its a real time saver!!!


    If anyone asks, the roll dip and drip with ACRYLIC based mortar was brought to you by SkullAndBone.com =).

    cheers.

    p.s. Hi Rot.
