We are happy to introduce our new white candle dye flakes. These flakes are superior to our old dye block; you will get whiter results using these flakes. Unlike the old dye block, these white candle dye flakes will not clog your wick and do burn off more easily.
- 1lb. bag will color approximately 100 to 110 lbs of wax.

Candle dye flakes are also known as powdered dyes. Because of their powdery forms, they need to be allowed a little time to dissolve. They should be added to the wax at about 176 to 180°F. Dye flakes do not give the kind of consistency that liquid dyes afford. It is not as easy to get exact proportions in different candles, especially when making them in small batches. This is why they are more suitable for large projects.
Dye flakes are very concentrated and just a little would go a long way. Just like liquid dyes, you add as much or as little as you want based on the color you want to achieve. The weight of the wax also plays a huge role. For more consistent color, measure your flakes as a percentage of the amount of wax you are using, in pounds. Anything between 0.1 to 0.25% is okay. Measure your wax and multiply it by the desired percentage. The result of this is the amount of dye flakes you need. Dye flakes are very easy to use. Simply add to the wax and stir very well until they dissolve.
