Colored Flames on Wax Candles

  1. Jul 1, 2012 #1
    I purchased a set of "ColorFlame" candles, they burn like a normal candle except the flame gives off colorful flame, some green, some red, some purple and orange. I was curious as to how the candle burns a different color flame? And if it would be reasonably easy to do as a project at home? I figured someone here must know how it works. Thanks.
