I usage the color blocks indigenous C&S and also that allows me to regulate how much shade goes in come actually get either a light, tool or dark. If you are using either fluid or blocks simply use a little bit that brown and the wax acts together a white/ivory shade to offer you the lighter tones. Also C&S sell a shade wheel that mirrors you how to mix what to obtain what you want.

Hope this helps.

Well first would be to number out just how to do brown through what girlfriend have. Sooooo, usage all the colors. That will gain you there, however it"s walking to be tedious.

You have red and also yellow, i m sorry will acquire you come orange. I think if you add blue to the you can gain to brown, which in turn you can lighten up with much more wax and also probably a touch that yellow. Good luck in the lab.

You could additionally combine blue and also yellow to make green and add red come it to acquire brown. Then you"ll have to play roughly with making the shade lighter to obtain to caramel.

Forget the shade wheel stuff. It isn"t going to tell you that one drop to one autumn will offer this color. Girlfriend will need to experiment.

Scented"s right...it"s going to be hit or miss. This might assist some.


I mix purple and yellow to gain brown. Girlfriend might try mixing up some purple (red & blue) in a bit of wax in a dixie cup. Execute the exact same with yellow climate you deserve to slice and mix till you gain the shade you like.

I can obtain a caramel color using a liquid vanilla dye. However you need to test out how much to use in drops-- an ext drops an ext caremel color. Coffee color works too.

If girlfriend don"t have actually either shot mixing brown and yellow together.

I usage an aluminum tea light mold to help me test. I placed in a small bit the melted wax and add a fall of shade to test and mix v a toothpick and let that set. Then once I do my candle I use quarter pieces of the dyed tea light wax to include to the candle i am making until I acquire my desired color.

Thats just how I acquire my vanilla color. Vanilla goes a long means and has to be supplied sparingly-- or it transforms caramel brown. That"s why I thought you could try vanilla.

Sorry-- simply realized you had only primary colors to work-related with.

Do a google find for a color wheel. I sometimes use a color wheel come mix colors ns want utilizing primes.

Thanks for all of the great advice. I played mad scientist yesterday and also came quite close. Poured our very first two 3x6 chunk pillars last night and one is test burning now.
