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.

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.

When using recommended amount it comes out as an orangy pink like another stated. Used in bw910 parasoy.

Soy Color is Misrepresented

Like others, I found the resulting color of this dye when used in soy wax to be a warm-toned orangey pink. It is nothing like the cool toned brown shown in the example image. I would say the color I ended up with was more of a chestnut/oompahloompah color.
