In order to color your candles, color pigment must be added. The more colorant you add, the darker the candle will be. Good quality color pigments give a good result! Use 1g color pigment/KG paraffin as a basis for coloring the mass of candles. In case you prefer dipping the candle, use 2g color pigment/KG paraffin.
Dissolve the coloring pigment in a separate mixing cup at a ratio of 1 in 10 (10%), wherein the wax temperature during this mixing contains 80-90 degrees Celsius. Add the coloring pigment when the wax is completely melted and has a temparature of about 80 degrees Celsius. Stir well until the mass obtains a nice homogenous mixture. Stir well before pouring the soap in order to keep a clean and even color.
