Basic studio shot of a melting green candle on red satin fabric. I used another candle to melt the wax faster, making a cascade of wax that I captured as the top layer ran down. Post processing to give it the "neg" feel was an effect called "solarize." It reverses all highlights and shadows and the colors (to a degree).

Beautiful colours from this negative image, is that material a silk? The candle stick holder also comes up a very interesting colour. Good luck. 8
