Can I use crayons to color my candles?

We don't recommend it.  The wax and pigments used to make crayons are formulated very differently from the wax and pigments that are used for candle-making.  When you add melted crayons to your candle, you may end up with a very pretty finished product, but it usually won't burn.  

If you want to add color to your candles, we carry several options:  dye chips, dye blocks, and liquid dye.  You can find more information on them here:  https://www.candlescience.com/color
