Can I use the regular icing colors to color candy melts? Thank you.

Occasionally when we are looking for a light  pastel or other light color - nothing that requires too much color - our decorators will using icing color, but it's best to use the oil-based candy colors.  Too much of the water-based icing color could make the candy seize (thicken and clump).
