Here are a couple of pixs of some piller candles I made to put on The Pipe organ I'm building. Pipe Organ should be done this weekend. Will post photos of Pipe Organ on Monday. A BIG THANK YOU gos out to TERRA for her tutorial on the pvc candles. I did one extra thing. I mixed brown and black poster paint and made a good mud color. Then Painted it all over the candle and wiped it off with a wet paper towel. I think it gives the candles a great antique look.

Great idea with the antique look! I'm doing up a bunch and although they look good once spray painted white they were lacking something. Now I know what to do! Thanks.
You bet I'm Glade I could Help! That's why I love this forum. I get help when needed ( which is a lot more then I would like to say ). I give help (not as much as I would like).

Your welcome BevAnn. Glade I could help. I did the same thing painted my candles and thought to myself they needed a little more. So I threw some stain on them and @#$# the paint all came off. Live and learn. So that's when I went to water based poster paint.
Post some photos when your done I would love to take a look at them.
