I know they make "candy colors"; but I suspect you could use the paste colors. Try with a small amount of wafers in a small dish; if the colors you have cause the melted "chocolate" to sieze, then you'll know you have to use the candy colors.

The best way to make custom colored candy melts is to mix different colors together. Here's a chart that Wilton provides to create different shades. (Click the chart to see it bigger.)
