Our Brown Liquid Candle Dye for candle wax produces a color ranging from light to dark brown depending on the type of wax and amount of dye used. In soy wax, our brown candle dye generally produces light to medium shades; whereas paraffin wax can range from pastel to deep 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

I read many reviews stating that this brown dye is tricky to work with due to being light in color. The trick is just to use a few more drops than you usually would, and the color will be beautiful. I am making chocolate chip and coffee bean was embeds and although my first batch is “milk chocolate” color, a couple additional drops brought them to a nice coffee bean and dark chocolate color. I am pleased with this product!

Excellent-used for 11 year

This is a great brown candle dye. I've been using it for 11 years now both as a mixer with other colors or on its own. As with all of your liquid dyes, it is true to color and mixes great with wax.

More Red than Brown

I love the fragrances but this was my first time purchasing dye for some coffee candles. Didn't seem to matter how many drops I used, it was still really red with a little brown =/

Liquid brown dye

Not a true brown. It has a red tint to it.

Not a True Brown

Not happy with this dye color. Looks more terra cotta than a true brown. Used in Soy 464. I will try the wax dye next. I even tried adding a bit of black dye and still not good. So, pass on this color choice if needing a solid brown.
