My mind is boggled, how did you get the candle to drip like that when it's burning on top? It's such a surreal affect, I like it.

Cleverly done, I can see that the candle actually hasn't dripped however (but that's probably a good thing for the model) :)

This is striking. The first thing that caught my eye was the candle wax, dripping down her shoulder. But what really kept my attention was her face. Her expression is so...I can't find the right words...but it just holds you there, as if she's trying to communicate with her eyes. Beautiful model, and a stunning picture. :clap:

This is a really strong picture. I find that when my gaze goes from her piercing eyes to the amazing candle work the piece becomes disconnected. I don't know why. And that 'eyes following you effect"...

Was the candle photoshoped onto her sholder? It looks amazing I love the fact that you have a light candle on the Models shoulder and the wax is running down it freeley. The tone of her skin is beatufil as well. It looks quit painfull realy by just looking at it.

Not really, if you use the right kind of candle (plain, unscented, and absolutely no beeswax) the sting of the wax can actually be quite pleasurable. The trick would be getting the candle to stay in place.

You use the right kind of candle (as some burn hotter than others). You would be surprised how pleasurable hot candle wax can be for some people :)

Just be sure to avoid beeswax candles and always test a few drops on your wrist first. The best ones to use (at least to start) are plain, unscented paraffin candles as coloring, scents (especially scents) and hardeners all increase the burning temperature. Safety first :)

I love the way the wax has trickled down her arm! The patience and will needed to do that is amazing! And the way the candle is so perfect and unmarred until you reach the bottom of it! Lovely!

How long did it take for the candle to get like that for you?

Lovely! I don't see why some people are scared of candle wax. It actually doesn't hurt in a melted form and the skin that it is on it's nearly as sensitive as someone's hands or face.
