Red 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

I have the same issue, no matter how much I add it's pink. Maybe adding yellow or black will make a difference?

This is the only dye I have had trouble with. My Apple candles look more bubble gum pink than red. I used 5 drops per pound of soy. 3 drops were 'suppose' to be a medium shade of red, and 6 a darker shade. So I used 5 and it doesn't look red at all. I'm not even sure if doubling it will work. I wish I could load a picture on here. Candles are hot pink!

i used eco soya pb, used 24 drops on 2 lbs and got a nice red hot cinnamon candy color. i would increase color by 4 drops per lb for even darker red.
