== == The difference between the both is that coloured candles have chemicals in them which makes them burn faster then white candles. White candles also have chemicals but not as much which makes them burn slower.

White candles burn slightly faster due to coloring pigments found on colored candles.

white candles burn faster because colored candles have more chemicals which take a longer time to burn,although it also depends on the wick of the candle if it is cheap it wont burn if its a good quality wick it will burn. =) my science fair project...

White candles reflect the light in the experiment.

because the darker the color the more light-waves it takes in. Therefore the regular temperature of the candle will increase. darker colored candles would burn faster

One reason why white candle could burn faster than a colored candle is that a colored candle has dyes that slow the rate of burning.

White or colored candles may burn at the same rate or at different rates. The rate at which a candle burns is dependent on the size and composition of the wick, and the thickness, composition, and melting / vaporization rate of the candle wax.
