Black 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

The color is gorgeous once you get it right, but it takes an INSANE amount of dye to color soy wax. I'm rather disappointed and feel like I waste dye by using so much just to get a nice onyx color from it. :-/ It takes 30-40 drops just to get the dark, rich black color I'm looking for in a 6 oz soy wax cat figurine. Overall, it *does* cost me less than most black dyes, but I still wish it was better formulated for use in soy wax.

I used this in Comfort Blend (IGI 4627). I love the ability to get a nice grey out of this color, and also to get a jet black. No purple tones here. I think I put in 6 drops, and got a dark grey color. I can't quite remember how many for a jet black, but it wasn't outrageous... perhaps 12? Soy is harder to work with, so be aware when you buy any oil or dye, they generally aren't made to work with soy. Love this dye, won't use anything else for grey/black.

This is the first dye that gave me a true jet black, although expect to use a LOT in soy. It took 40 drops for 1lb of 464. Even with that much needed, the scent of the dye did not carry over. I give it only 4 starts, for the amount needed, but otherwise, it's the only black dye that actually achieves BLACK
