How to Make a Glow in the Dark Eyeball Caldron Votive Candle Holder

SHARE THIS!


In this tutorial, I will show you how to make a Glow in the Dark Eyeball Caldron Votive Candle Holder.

The Ingredients

For this project, I used
– A glass votive candle holder
– Black Tempera paint by Prang
– Glow in the Dark Paint by DecoArt
– Tissue Paper or Toilet Paper

The Glass of Many Coats

I chose Tempera Paint because it dries Matte and it’s what I have in stock at the moment. Tempera paint washes away with water so it’s important not to let this project get wet. Otherwise, use glass paint or a more permanent paint or seal the tempera paint with a top coat.

This is the first coat. You have to let the paint fully dry between coats.

This is the second Coat.

This is the third coat:

… and Finally, the satisfying result! A caldron appears in the madness…

Glow Paint Stew

I brushed the Glow Paint lightly inside. I didn’t use many coats because I will fill this with tissue paper. I made sure to dab globs of glow paint to the rim.

I used more than 1 coat of Glow Paint to dab around the top portion of the painted votive candle holder. I let the paint dry between coats.

I love how it looks wispy and cloudy. Perfect for a bubbling caldron pot.

I got carried away in some areas – the glow paint started to drip down the pot.

I crumpled toilet paper and filled the pot with it. I dabbed globs of paint on the toilet paper to cover it completely with the glow in the dark paint.

I glued a glow-in-the-dark eyeball to the painted candle holder.

I added Glow in the Dark Eyeballs to the top of the painted tissue paper.

Here is the Glow in the Dark effect when the lights are turned down:

Here is the top part of the Candle Holder. I love that the tissue paper hardens into a plastic texture at the top so you wouldn’t know it’s tissue paper.

Here is short footage of what the candle holders look like in the dark…wait for it…
