What Color Will My Candle Be When it Cools?

Candles will have a different color once they have cooled versus the color of the wax when it is melted. Sometimes there can be dramatic differences.

To test and see how your candle is going to turn out once it has cooled, you can simply take a small sample of the melted wax (using a wooden spoon or other utensil) and place it on a paper towel or white sheet of paper. It should cool quickly and give you a good idea of what the candle will be in its final form. If you are not happy with the color in the sample, simply add more dye and repeat the process until you achieve your desired shade of color.
