Magenta 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.Made in the USA

This magenta is a nice and dark, concentrated red/purple/pink color (the image looks almost red on my monitor, but in real life it's a dark magenta with hints of purple/pink as you might expect). I've mixed it with yellow at a 1:1 ratio to achieve a red color, and you could probably even use more yellow to make it more of an orange-ish red. As I noted in my review of the red dye, I think this mix is a better option than the red dye, especially for soy wax where CS's red dye seems a bit too weak. I'm sure it would also work well as a magenta hue as-is, though I've only used it for blending.

Absolutely stunning deep magenta, our go-to dye for so many FOs with EcoSoy. Pair with red for a glowing essence. Add a few drops of orange to create a fun cranberry hue. For those who think basic red is boring, THIS is your color! Magenta never disappoints!
