Liquid Candle Dyes

We carry awesome, super concentrated liquid dyes that are formulated for soy. We wish that we could say that they are all natural and skin safe, but we can't. It's not that they are Not Skin Safe, it's just that since they are intended for candles they have not gone through the testing to be labeled skin safe. All our liquid dyes are petroleum based. They do meet California Proposition 65 Standards.

If you want to get by with a bare minimum, you'll need the 3 primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. Brown is about the hardest color to mix, so you will save yourself much grief to purchase it already made. Black is great to help make your colors darker and deeper.

How Many Liquid Dye Drops Should I Use?

The maximum amount is 30 drops per pound of wax (or a maximum of 0.2% dye load). Using more dye will likely clog your wick. Remember, that is the maximum you can use. Use the least amount of dye to achieve the colors you want.

For large batches you can pour and weigh your dye instead of using a dropper.
A pound of wax (anything really) weighs 464 grams. The maximum dye load is 0.2%.
So 464g x .002 = .928g dye per pound of wax.
One drop of dye weighs about .03g (same as 30mg)
The maximum of 30 drops x .03g = .9g (900mg) per pound of wax
So a 4 pound batch of wax would be 4 x .9g = 3.6g (3,600mg) dye maximum
A 20 pound batch of wax is 20 x .9g = 18g dye maximum

To check your colors.  Start with a drop of dye in a pound of wax, put a drip of your colored wax on a piece of white paper or a white paper plate. Let cool. Keep adding dye a drop or two at a time into your pound of wax until you get the color you desire. Keep good notes and you won't have to keep repeating your experiment. Be creative and have fun!

Candle Dye Cleanup Tip; If soap and water won't clean up the dye, you can try a little fragrance oil (may damage some surfaces). Then clean up the fragrance oil with some soap and water. I've used Clorox Clean-Up on bleach safe surfaces, too.
