If you’re wondering what type of paint to use, in this project they suggest mixing a little dish soap to acrylic paint so that it will stick to the candle better.
Candle Painting Medium
On the other hand, DecoArt has a handy candle painting medium out. You just mix it in equal amounts with your paint before using. It adheres better and creates a protective layer so that the candle paint becomes more durable. There are more complex and detailed candle painting projects on DecoArt’s website if you’re interested.
