I cleaned my wax by melting it in water twice and filtering it through cloth. But, when I went to use it I found that it has grown a few "whiskers". Perhaps I did not clean it well enough?

Also, while making parrafin candles I simply added a broken crayon to add color. But, with the beeswax I don't think the color is as smooth. Are crayons not a good coloring agent for beeswax, or do I just need to keep it hot longer to allow the color to mix better?
