You can use the candle wax of any colour. The candle wax can be blue, white, pink etc. or any other colour. You will have to heat the wax slab and then set it inside the container well. You need to be very careful while inserting the twine in the candle. Make sure that the twine is long enough and goes right till the bottom of the candle so that it prevents fire.
