This dye gives me the color of purple I want for GB 444 soy wax I use. Sad it's being discontinued.
As of 11/03/2016:This product is discontinued and no longer available.
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.
these dye chips are great if you are going for a Barney the dinosaur purple color. I had better results using 2 red and 2 brown chips in 2 pounds of GB464.
I used 2 chips to 1 lb of soy wax and it turned out purple! What a waste to my cranberry marmalade candles. The color would be pretty if it was meant for something purple, but I was very disappointed. I wish I had read the reviews first.
The color you get from Burgundy is a pretty Purple Plum -- not Burgundy at all. It happened to work for the Pomegranate Spice I used it with, but I had to change the name to Plum Crazy. Looked like a pretty burgundy on the screen, but you will definitely get Purple Plum if you use it!
the burgundy dye chips alone will not make the color in soy wax. We have found that 2 chips plus a brown chip makes a good burgundy color
I think if I would have added the red chip along with the 2 burgundy chips and half a black chip like Lorie suggested, I would have gotten a burgundy color. Instead, I used 2 burgundy chips, 1/2 black chip to 1lb. of the 464 soy wax and the results were like a mauve color. I will try again and give my results.
To make a true burgundy, I used 2 Burgundy Dye Chips, 1 Red and 1/2 Black to 1 lb. of 464. Turned out very nice!
I use the chips in J225 one chip per pound and come out with a very good color that is the same time after time.
Used 6 chips in a batch for 3 16oz candles and ended up with a purple color, no red in the dye at all. Was looking for a deep burgundy. Tried in another batch with the same results.
Used 1 chip in GB464 for more pastel burgundy...came out more twords the purple dye chip. No red tones. Tried more chips with added black, still more purple.
