This dye gives me the color of purple I want for GB 444 soy wax I use. Sad it's being discontinued.

Not burgundy at all

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.

Not actually the color Burgundy

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.

Burgundy Equals Purple Plum

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!

Burgundy Dye chips

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

Not quite a burgundy color result

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.

Too Light

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!

Good Color

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.

Disappointed in color

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.

a bit disapointed

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.
