Dear Steven,

If you just want to make a paraffin board, try black or brown crayons. Or go 
to a candle store and get some candle/wax coloring made for coloring wax. 
Good Luck

Histologically yours,

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.
