Default parrifin wax candles burn faster...

I have done this project last year and i liked it alot. I was thinking of other ways to change the project up a bit. LAst year i used colored candles with no parrifin and then i used candles with paraffin and no color as my control. I burned the candles for the same amount of time and then recorded how much each one weighed after burning. I subtracted how much each candle weighed before burning and after and I came to my conclusion. Any ideas of how to spice this project up alittle and change it around some?

Default Burning candles

You can try burning all candles in an air-conditioned room to see if the burn faster in colder temperature or vice versa. Also, you could increase the wind conditions to see whether all candles or just the colored ones burn faster or slower when it's more windy. These are just some of the variables you can play around with.
