Our new Candle dye blocks are formulated to increase color clarity. They color more wax than the dye chips. These blocks can be mixed with both soy and paraffin candle making wax. 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. Dye colors can be mixed in order to make different colors.
Use the candle dye blocks the same way you use dye chips.
A 1 piece block of dye colors 5-50 lbs. of wax, depending on the color shade you are trying to achieve.
Also available in 12 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.
