Burgundy Liquid Dye
Usage: 1oz colors 100 lbs soy or 200 lbs paraffin to a medium shade. 4oz colors 400 lbs soy or 800 lbs paraffin to a medium shade.
Deep, rich colors are difficult in soy. They require 2-3 times the dye that paraffin requires, sometimes more. Note that standard dye amounts create a washed-out, pastel color in soy. We suggest making a test swatch to figure out the dye amount you will need to get the color youâ€™d like.
Due to the extreme concentration of our liquid dyes there is a noticeable odor that will not be detectable at normal usages in finished candles.Product Update: We are converting our glass liquid dye containers to plastic containers for easier shipping.

I used this dye to make Pomegranate cider candles. I used GB 464 soy wax and used 20 drops in 2 lbs wax. It was a really pretty purple/maroon type color. It was not Burgundy at all and I was hoping for a more deep red tone to the color. Purple was not what I was going for. I did give this 3 stars because it was a very pretty color and mixed very well. I would use this again just maybe not for the Pomegranate cider. It may color differently in parafin wax or be different if I used double the drops. Will have to test it a bit more.

This is so easy to use! I've been using dye chips and was a little nervous how different the liquid would be. I use 1 lb of IGI 6006 ParaSoy at a time to make candles. I am still new to the process and have also just switched from GB 464 to IGI 6006 so I'm not sure how it will do in Pure Soy. I used 7 drops in IGI 6006 and it came out a lovely medium rose pink. A little lighter than what I wanted for Dragon's Blood, but still very pretty! I'll add more drops next batch to make it darker for Dragon's Blood and keep this color in mind for a different scent! Will buy again!
