I posted these candles a while back in Misc. Completed projects and I checked in with Leah to make sure it was o.k. (she said it was) to submit them for this challenge.

I made these Duran Duran shrine candles for a friend of mine who is a huge Duran Duran fan. I used 5 different colored glass encased candles (like the ones you find with various Saints & prayers on them). I had colored copies made from the Astronaut CD  of each of the band members with the angelic star burst added in the background.



I then cut the pictures to fit the candles and used Mod Podge to adhere and seal.

Simple but I think they came out great and my friend flipped when she saw them.

Thanks for looking Smiley

BEAUTIFUL! OMG I am jealous. I don't really do too much with 80s stuff other than fashion so I can't do anything with bands. But wow! I love the colors!

Thank you for all of your compliments. They mean a lot to me. I have to confess that these candles are my favorite creation so far. And the happiness they brought and still bring to my friend is awesome Smiley

Those are so great! Thank you so much for telling how you did it, because I think I'm going to try, although I don't feel confident they'll turn out as well as yours!
I wore out Simon Le Bon on my friend's Duran Duran poster with lip gloss when I was a teen.  I wasn't allowed to have my own poster (sniff).
I also used to be obsessive about those saint candles-they are so weird and cool.
I wonder if you could sell those, or would there be copyright issues? Because they are awesome.

I totally think you should try it. I had a good time doing them. And if you get stuck or anything you can always PM and I'll talk you through it.

As for selling them. Someone else asked me that and I am thinking that Simon & Co. would be a bit peeved if they found out I was profiting from their images.
