Be sure you use the correct amount of drops and experiment before making a large batch. This is my first try and i used the color palette from the product and wanted the deepest burgundy so used 6 drops per lb as directed. The color when mixing looked just perfect, but when drying was more of a mauve color, def not what I was looking for. Fortunately I didn’t make a large batch. I’ll keep trying until I get the deep color I’m looking for and decide if it’s going to be cost effective.

Usage: 1oz colors 100 lbs soy or 200 lbs paraffin to a medium shade. 4oz colors 400 lbs soy or 800 lbs paraffin to a medium shade.
Deep, rich colors are difficult in soy. They require 2-3 times the dye that paraffin requires, sometimes more. Note that standard dye amounts create a washed-out, pastel color in soy. We suggest making a test swatch to figure out the dye amount you will need to get the color you'd like.
Due to the extreme concentration of our liquid dyes there is a noticeable odor that will not be detectable at normal usages in finished candles.

The color is really nice but reacts with Soy every time producing more than normal frosting. Even mixed with other colors or using less I get frosting with this 100% of the time
I was trying to achieve a plum/ purple type color with this dye. I don’t think I got the exact shade I wanted but I must say it’s very concentrated and one 4oz bottle of dye created 130 6oz jars candles.
I used 25 drops per lb of Golden Brands 444 soy wax.
I think if I had used about 35 drops the color would have been achieved but overall I’m satisfied and the dye does a great job!
25 drops in one pound of GB464 Soy achieved the deep burgundy pictured, a beautiful color. (Okay, maybe the last drop was overkill but there was no way I would settle for another raspberry colored candle.) More specific soy usage instructions might avoid disappointment for the first time user.
Twelve drops in one pound of GB464 Soy produced a lovely medium raspberry color. Natural waxes will take more than twice the amount of dye suggested to achieve the deep burgundy in the sample picture. Protect your work surface and your hands from stains. Unlike dye blocks/chips, liquid tends to spill and even a tiny drop of this concentrated color can get everywhere.
I actually used this to make a pinkish raspberry color. I used just one drop for like 50 oz. of IGI 6006.
I used this dye to make Pomegranate cider candles. I used GB 464 soy wax and used 20 drops in 2 lbs wax. It was a really pretty purple/maroon type color. It was not Burgundy at all and I was hoping for a more deep red tone to the color. Purple was not what I was going for. I did give this 3 stars because it was a very pretty color and mixed very well. I would use this again just maybe not for the Pomegranate cider. It may color differently in parafin wax or be different if I used double the drops. Will have to test it a bit more.
This is so easy to use! I've been using dye chips and was a little nervous how different the liquid would be. I use 1 lb of IGI 6006 ParaSoy at a time to make candles. I am still new to the process and have also just switched from GB 464 to IGI 6006 so I'm not sure how it will do in Pure Soy. I used 7 drops in IGI 6006 and it came out a lovely medium rose pink. A little lighter than what I wanted for Dragon's Blood, but still very pretty! I'll add more drops next batch to make it darker for Dragon's Blood and keep this color in mind for a different scent! Will buy again!
