Ready till the wax is absolutely melted and heated up ensures the dye absolutely disperses and melts into the wax. Whereas we did not use actual formulation and experimented with creating colours, you could be extra exact with the shades in your candles.

Nonetheless, the layered candle required every colour to harden for a number of hours earlier than including the following. In between every coloured layer, we cleaned out the dropper by eradicating the highest and likewise wiped extra wax out of the pot to make sure the least quantity of colour mixing.
