What you need:
- White, cylinder glass candles (great find at the dollar store, or even amazon)
- Oil paint pen (I used a Sharpie one here)
- 1/8 or 1/4 inch tape (my white version is 1/8 and green version is 1/4, similar to this)
Tape off the horizontal stripes first, and then move on to the vertical ones. Make sure you stagger them from row to row, like a brick wall would be.
THIRD: After you’re done painting, you peel the tape off gently. I’ve found that the oil paint pens do the best job of not peeling off with the tape. But it will happen here and there, and when it does, just take your pen and touch it up. Just another reason to use a pen. Better control than a paint brush. Clean up any stray paint that might have gotten under the tape with a razor blade.
