    Default Coloring Beeswax Candles

    One thing I've been wanting to do but would like some advice on is when
    making beeswax Candles, how do I dye them different colors?

    Specifically, Can I just use any old dye, or can I possibly ruin the Candle
    if I don't use a specific process or type of dye? I just want to be able
    to make like say Red candles for holiday, that sort of thing.

    They make color chips to add to the liquid wax.

    Mann Lake, Betterbee and some others sell beekeeping supplies and candle supplies. They are also online.

    You can use the color chips for candles or even use the candle honeycomb texture sheets to tint your wax. If you dip your candles, you can just make the last two dips in colored beeswax.
