Take a cassette & color it with a Sharpie or slide pen. ;)

Let me add a few points after touching base with the researcher.  There 
will be no tissue processed, nor labeling needed.  Just a plain paraffin 
block made.  This block will be used like a "cork board" but with paraffin 
instead to pin a tissue flat to the surface.  Odd request, but I have to 
ask. Thanks again for those who have answered, and thanks to all of you 
who are scratching your head, drinking your coffee and thinking about 
this.  TGIF

A researcher is wondering (now so am I [I never heard this request 
before]) if any company sells black paraffin and black embedding 
cassettes?  No, this isn't a Gothic thing, a legitimate request.  Would it 
be possible to add something to paraffin to make it stay a black color and 
remain strong as our commercial paraffin products?  Thanks.
