Our Black Liquid Candle Dye for candle wax produces colors ranging from light grey to black, depending on the type of wax and amount of dye used. For example, our black candle dye in soy wax generally produces light to medium shades, whereas paraffin wax can range from pastels to darker shades. We encourage you to experiment.

Use: 3 drops/lb (454 g) for a lighter shade or 6 drops/lb (454 g) for a darker shade

Amazing results

I absolutely love how pigmented this color is. This is such a pure black it’s insane. There is no way I can try another dye besides this. I am so happy with this purchase

I have been trying many different dyes and color mixtures to try and get a true black color for my candles. After doing research and hearing about liquid dye I of course came to Candle science (where I get all my candle supplies) and ordered this black. I came out with an amazing true black that I had been looking for! Thank you again Candle Science for being awesome!!

Just one critique...

Listen, I love using liquid dye when making products because the shades wouldn't be completely all over the place with different batches, however, the rubber top might pop off a little bit, which will then cause you to get the dye on your fingers.

Use more than directed to give deep black color

Although I have to add way more drops than directed, I am able to get a true deep black color in my 90% soy/10% paraffin wax blend. Very happy with the product!

Best black dye

This is the BEST black dye. It makes a true deep black and is concentrated.
