I also did colored lithos myself using transparency film. When doing these you have to print the picture exactly the same size of the litho and line it up, not hard at all.

What will matter is not what you bought but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave

So you guys are saying, that you print the picture on a transparency and then line it up with the back of the litho. The backing light then shines through both the transparency and the "candlestone' creating the coloured affect?.
Am i on the right track?.

yes right on track, what I do is print the picture on white paper first and get the right size, then print the transparency one, I use ink jet transparency and is quit high.
