How to Draw a Melting Candle Step by Step

Step 1: Draw the Candle Stick

Draw the Candle Stick Body

For drawing a melting candle as your Halloween project, you have to gather all the necessary supplies first. Now, you have to draw the candle stick made of wax. For this, draw a regular rectangle with a rounded bottom.

I have used my favorite 4B pencil and 320 gsm paper. You can use your own favorite supplies.

Step 2: Draw the Melting Wax

Melting wax is the main feature of this Halloween drawing project. So, draw an irregular closed curve line over the top side of the rectangle. It will be the melting wax of the candle.

Step 3: Make the Wax Visible

You will see that a proper melting wax has been created on the top side of the candle stick. 

Step 4: Draw the Candle Wick

At this stage, you have to draw a candle wick which is made of yarn. Usually, this wick lies on top of the candle. So, you have to also draw it on the top side of the candle stick.

You just need to draw a small straight line on the top side of the candlestick to create the yarn wick.

Step 5: Draw the Burning Flame

Finally, color your melting wax candle and bring life into it. I have used basic three colors in it which are – yellow for the flame, white for the melting wax, and light purple for the candle stick.

As the coloring tools, I have used watercolor markers. You can go for your own coloring supplies and shades. Always try to play with colors and explore something new.
