My absolute favourite, non soaping product is Sharpie oil based markers. I use them to personalise and create unique candle and other gifts for my customers. It is sometimes surprising how a very simple drawing on a coffee mug or a glass can make all the difference.

In this project, I’m turning a simple glass, nothing special about it-into a unique, hand painted thank you jar for a candle.
Here are my tools of choice-Sharpie paint pens. These are oil based, not water based so they are perfect for glass, ceramic-anything really. The paint goes on very easily with a nice, smooth flow. I have not tried these projects with the other Sharpie pens. To be honest, when I first bought these paint pens, I expected them to dry out fairly quickly. I’ve painted more than 100 pieces so far and my pens are still doing well with gorgeous, bright colours.
Paint pens offer much better control than brushes and are therefore perfect for you if you’re new to this.
This was by far, the best investment I made in a craft product in years.
I started this project by filling in a white square on the glass. Please note that nothing on this project needs to be perfect. Just go with it..
Next I drew around the perimeter of the white rectangle, different colours and shapes of leaves. (probably the very easiest thing to draw). I used the white paper inside the glass so I could see the colours better. I intend to pour a white candle in the glass later on.
Fill in spaces with leaves of different sizes.
I used black to add some depth and definition to the leaves. Cute huh?
Finally, I lined the rectangle with black and wrote in my Thank you message.
I think it looks sweet. It didn’t require any enormous artistic ability. At this point, I bake the jar at 350 F for 30 minutes to set the paint.
Tomorrow, I’m going to cast a candle in this (blog post coming up) to finish up, so stay tuned.
Here is a look at some of the other projects I completed using these Sharpie Oil based markers.
