Previous to this, I had bought a liquid dye and it simply would not pigment my eco-soy wax candle enough to get the rich, deep blue I wanted without destroying the scent throw or making the wick fail to burn. These chips were in improvement in both areas. Some people complain about frosting, but I've used some shoddy dyes, so to me it was perfect and matte, striations easily fixed by torching visible areas with a heavy duty lighter.

For a similar candle dye we recommend our Royal Blue Dye Blocks. It is more concentrated, so you can use less of the dye block to achieve the same color as the dye chips.
Our dye chips are packed in foil bags that virtually eliminate color from bleeding through the bag and staining other surfaces.
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.

This disolved very fast in the wax. I had to use 4 chips for 1 Lb of 464 to get a nice blue color, but as long as you know that going in, you will be happy.
I love this color blue, but I can not get this blue to not frost with the 464. I have tried everything from warming the jars to using different kinds of jars and nothing helps at all.
I received this color in the sample pack and will definitely be reordering! It's a beautiful blue and very strong! After dealing with some of the weaker colors, this was a breeze to work with. I put 2.5 chip in 3 lbs of GB 464 with "Rain Water" and everyone wants these candles more for the color than the scent!
