How to Tint Beeswax

Beeswax is a popular material for candle making because it is a natural, unrefined product. Beeswax candles burn cleanly and do not drip, making them an attractive choice. Many home crafters dabble in candle making and often choose the work with beeswax. Whether making dipped or molded candles from beeswax, melt it carefully and slowly. Once the beeswax melts, at just over 140 degrees, you can tint the beeswax, if desired, before dipping or molding the candles. If you would like to learn how to color your beeswax candles, I would recommend reading the article, How to Tint Beeswax by ehow contributor, Kathryn Hatter.
