    Thanks Deepa, I am giving the procedure .
    Soak the diyas in water overnite and dry in the sun. Acrylic ,poster colors can be used to color the diyas. Mirrors, stones can be stuck with fevicol .
    Melt a plain candle in an old pan (do not overheat ), remove the wick carefully and hang to dry. Put small pieces of wax crayons in the melting wax to give color. Pour the wax into the painted diyas , cut wick into pieces and stick it in when the wax is semi-hard. The beautiful diyas will be ready in a few hours !
