Our new candle dye block 12 pack will increase color clarity, color more wax and save money!
Available in 27 colors, these Candle dye block 12 pack work the same way as the chips. Dye blocks are intended to mix with candle making wax (both soy and paraffin). The dye blocks can be shaved into smaller pieces to create lighter shades. The more dye that you add, the darker the color shade will become. Mix multiple dyes and achieve various colors.
A 12 piece block of dye will color 5-50 lbs. of wax, depending on the color shade you are trying to achieve.
Each pack contains 12 blocks of dye. Also available in single packs here!
Once the candle dye chip has been added to the melted wax, stir thoroughly to ensure the dye chip fully disperses in the wax.
It’s always best to add your fragrance oil first because some fragrance oils can change the color of your soy wax.
Add the dye chips and dye blocks to your wax at 185 F so that they fully dissolve. The hotter the wax the more easily they dissolve.
Colors usually look darker when they’re mixed in hot wax. When you think you’ve reached your desired color take a couple of drops of hot wax and drip onto a white piece of paper. Once it cools it gives you a more accurate idea of what your candle will look like once cooled.
Always take detailed notes how much color you used per pound of wax. This way you can multiply this amount by the number of pounds of soy wax you’re using.
