Matthewspacey Posted March 12, 2010 Report Share Posted March 12, 2010 So I admit, firstly I'm not really here for candle community so much as to learn a thing or two about technical aspects of the craft.I've been inspired by the artist Petah Coyne to make a few sculptures that use wax and candles as a main ingredient, but I've hit a few pitfalls. work sort of like whats displayed on her gallery is sort of what I'm going for http://www.galerielelong.com/artists/ I got a bunch of dark red microchrystalline wax for free that i want to use, but I need it black. (the sort of thing i found is here: http://www.sculpt.com/catalog_98/Wax/Micro.htm)what sort of dye should i use on this kind of wax?can I make this dark red wax actually black?what is candle dye made up of actually? if i cant get what I need out of what I have, I need a stiff black wax to melt over a bunch of stuff, what combination of wax/dye should i use?
