Dip-Dyed Taper Candles
This dipping technique works on pillar candles too. Center them on Dutch tiles, which will catch any melted wax.

Place beeswax pellets in can. Place can inside a small pot filled halfway with simmering water; let pellets slowly melt until fully liquefied and depth of wax is equivalent to length of candle sections you want to dip.
Add wax dye; let melt slowly, testing color with stick until it’s the shade you want.
One at a time, slowly dip candles into can, holding each straight in melted wax and then pulling straight up and out.
Hold each candle until wax is dry to the touch; carefully lay on a paper towel. Let harden completely.
