I purchased this color because it was on clearance, such a great price, thought I'd give it a try. I am very pleased with it. Wish it wasn't being discontinued. It turned out very nice for me. It isn't a dark orange. It is between a light orange and strawberry color It would be perfect to use with watermelon or strawberry scent. I hope to get more before you sell out. LOVE IT! Thanks Candlescience

Our dye chips are packed in foil bags that virtually eliminate color from bleeding through the bag and staining other surfaces.
Made in the USADirections:
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.
I have to agree with the reviews above...pink. 2lbs of wax and 4oz of scent wasted! Not cool. How about a store credit to replace at least what we've spent on the chips?? This is obviously an ongoing problem for customers across the board. Many of whom, like myself, can't really afford to be throwing product away. One other color I have had problems with is Maple. Is it supposed to be a light orange? Other than that...love you CandleScience!
I had 2 lbs. of Pumpkin scented wax, colored Autumn Orange, poured up into five containers. When the wax cured, my pumpkin scented candles were pink! It was a pretty pink, but not for pumpkin scented candles. I had to dig out wax, melt it down, clean wicks, jars, etc. and try to redeem my product. I added some red. I didn't have any yellow dye chips, so my product is basically red. I had to rename my product Autumn Spice Instead of Pumpkin Spice. Maybe they will sell, but I can't replicate them for bulk sales. . . . and the color Autumn Orange looked so pretty on the screen. Can anyone recommend a fall orange dye chip from ANYWHERE that is actually the color it is supposed to be?
used 1 chip for 1 lb of GB 464 and got a coral pink color for my pumpkin candles....UGH! Do not get these chips with the expectation that you will achieve an Autumn Orange color
Disappointed in this color chip! I was lucky enough to be using it with a floral fragrance so was able to correct the mis-color. I used (1) chip per pound of Ecosoya Advanced. Not sure if (2) would have made a difference or not. I noticed that the colors of many of the other dye chips are hit or miss, as well, but they are easy to use, so I will take the chance!
I put 5 chips in 3 lbs of GB 464 wax and came out with salmon pink! I'm so disappointed because I can't sell these candles and I'm just starting out so I'm losing money. It's pink with a small tint of orange. Next time, I'll try adding a couple yellow chips to see if the orange comes out more.
I used 1 dye chip per lb of wax. I wanted a nice rice colour for my Pumpkin Spice fragrance. The colour was very light almost a cross between a salmon pink and orange. I will try using 2 dye chips per lb of wax and hope this comes out better.
A very soft orange for the autumn season. I used two chips per pound in Ecosoya PB.
