Hello all! Hope all is well, I am having a major problem my store I used to get all my supply's from has closed down and I need candles. Does anyone know where I can get cheap colored candles? Or can I color them my self? If so how? Please help me!!
You can definitively find some candles of different candles in your cheap dollar stores, what kind of an area do you live in? Also there is the online store hosted here on SoM, but if you are unable to buy online, look around and you'll definitively find some shop that sells candles. If you want to make colored candles, you can look it up online, they're pretty easy if you have the supplies.

You can use a white candle to substitute for any color, even dollar stores carry them. If you really need your colored candles, most malls have at least one store with a variety of colors to choose from. For most ritual work, I like using emergency candles. They're short, white, and thick enough to fit in most taper candle holders snuggly. When looking for a colored candle, I always choose ones that are not dipped with color, but rather the entire wax is uniform. Ones dipped are hard to cut down without ruining them, and I like cutting long tapers in half. For alter candles I use pillars.
If you're into making your own items, candles can be fun to make. You can find most materials to make them at a hobby or craft store.
Craft stores sell them!! :) Keep an eye open around holidays, too! I just bought some pretty red taper candles at Wal*Mart a few weeks ago! And some black ones around Halloween! Black candles are really hard to find! You just have to know when to look for them, and stock up! :) Hope this helps!!
