Liquid Candle Dye
Liquid Dyes are packaged in clear glass Boston Round bottles with dropper tops. Each color can be made into different shades by adjusting the usage amount (see suggested use percentages below - .05% equals approximately 7 drops of dye per pound of wax). One oz. of dye should color approx. 125 lbs of wax (1 lb. of dye per 2,000 lbs) to a medium shade. Suggested usage varies for each color & shade, and will vary depending upon wax formula and additives. Once you get the shade you want, keep notes on the amount and measure used for easier color duplication in future batches. For larger batches, 1 tsp of dye equals about 132 drops or 5 grams.
Keep caps closed tightly or the dye can dry out! If the
bottle clogs up, remove cap and add a few drops of mineral oil to thin the
liquid back out, replace cap and shake well. Use a pin to unclog squeeze caps.
Note: These liquid dyes are very concentrated and have an odor to them. Once the dyes are diluted with wax and fragrance oil, this will not affect your finished candles.
