form. Dyes are used as they are know to not affect. Dyes are used as they are know not clog the wick of the candle. One the other hand pigments are small, microscopic colour particles that are not so good at giving colour and do clog the wick sometimes.

hence they are very rarerly used in candles. In this project I have decided to candles containing dyes because the are most common.
Different candles use different types of waxes in their candles. I found out that the most common candle wax used it paraffin which is a product of petroleum refining. Beeswax is also used in some countries but is very rare though it does have a growing overseas demand it still isn’t available in most countries. Beeswax however is a better option for candles as it is better for the environment. In this project I will be using paraffin candles as they are most common.
The wick is the cord or string that we light and use it to hold the flame. 99.9% of the time wicks are made with braided or rolled cotton.
