Made in the USA


The candle in the picture was made with 1 dye chip in a pound of IGI 4794 paraffin wax. For soy, parasoy, or other natural waxes you may need to use 2 or more chips to achieve a similar color.

Add dye chips to wax at 185 degrees or higher to ensure they'll dissolve completely.

Rating - Burgundy Dye chips

the burgundy dye chips alone will not make the color in soy wax. We have found that 2 chips plus a brown chip makes a good burgundy color

Rating - Not quite a burgundy color result

I think if I would have added the red chip along with the 2 burgundy chips and half a black chip like Lorie suggested, I would have gotten a burgundy color. Instead, I used 2 burgundy chips, 1/2 black chip to 1lb. of the 464 soy wax and the results were like a mauve color. I will try again and give my results.

Rating - Too Light

To make a true burgundy, I used 2 Burgundy Dye Chips, 1 Red and 1/2 Black to 1 lb. of 464. Turned out very nice!

Rating - Good Color

I use the chips in J225 one chip per pound and come out with a very good color that is the same time after time.

Rating - Disappointed in color

Used 6 chips in a batch for 3 16oz candles and ended up with a purple color, no red in the dye at all. Was looking for a deep burgundy. Tried in another batch with the same results.

Rating - a bit disapointed

Used 1 chip in GB464 for more pastel burgundy...came out more twords the purple dye chip. No red tones. Tried more chips with added black, still more purple.
