How To Colour Candle Wax

How To Colour Candle Wax

Another way to colour your candle is by using dye chips or dye blocks. These are a simple way to colour your candle, especially for beginners. Dye chips or blocks are made from vegetable based wax with a pre-measured amount of dye, this allows them to be added directly into melted wax.
Concentrated enough to color 15 pounds of candle wax to a deep shade, these color blocks are formulated from aniline dyes to give clear, bright tones or .
Liquid food color isn't effective for coloring candles; because it is water-based, it doesn't mix well with the wax. However, gel food coloring, often used for cake .
Use vegetable peeler or knife to shave bits of crayon into wax (totaling about a quarter of a crayon). Stir to blend. Let any bubbles settle, and dip a taper candle into wax to test the color (once beeswax dries, it can be broken off, so you can use the taper for the next batch). Add more shavings for darker color.
