Farben sehen und erkennen

See and recognize colors

Humans are able to see and recognize colors in all facets and gradations. This works through light. If there were no light, colors would not exist either. Light consists of electromagnetic waves. Colors have different color lengths. In the glass prism the colors are curved to different degrees. This creates the spectral colors that can also be seen in a rainbow. By the way, humans can see almost 40 percent of the colors contained in sunlight and distinguish around 2.3 million shades. An immense color capacity.

Colors also determine our everyday life. They create emotions. Even my 4-year-old daughter was able to learn at her daycare to assign colors to her feelings. This helps, for example, with understanding and processing anger.

But how are body colors created? Why are the leaves of the trees green and the sea blue?
Depending on the material, certain rays are absorbed by all objects in the world and other rays are reflected. This is how the objects get their colors.
The lush color spectrum of nature is nothing more than differently absorbed and reflected components of sunlight.

Of course, the perception of color varies from person to person. If you like green, you might find purple repulsive. Some people like pastel colors, while others love bright, saturated colors.

Because we also love colors, our Hansawax portfolio now also offers different colors for coloring candle wax. Our classic series can currently be found in the Hansawax webshop, which includes the colors red, green, blue, violet or yellow and has already been very well received by our customers. All colors offered are ideal for making and pouring candles. It is particularly easy to process our candle colors. They also deliver very good color results. We will certainly expand our candle color portfolio in the next few months. In addition to the color pigments, we also offer all accessories for making candles yourself, such as candle wicks, candle containers, candle wax (rapeseed wax, soy wax and beeswax).
