I just got the Aspen Frost faux wax seals by Basic Grey. They are an orange-based red. Any ideas for how I can tone them down? Thanks!

Ink or spray mist?

I haven't seen these before so I don't know if maybe vellum could do the trick?

Maybe Copic/ Promarker pens? they are alcohol based so might stick to the wax.

Acrylic paint should work.

If you have hassles getting any of the above products to stick, try a bit of Glue 'n Seal- brush on a thin coat, let it dry, then apply the colourant. This product (Ranger) allows even water-based DI's etc to grab on most surfaces- I admit I have not tried it on wax.

Thank you, Peas, for all of the suggestions! I checked my stash and have some Cranberry alcohol ink I am going to try. It can't hurt cuz I can't use them the color that they are now.
