I followed the directions according to the tutorial on creating votives, using these to color my votives as directed. I am disappointed! The color is good my was had sediment at the bottom! That's going to show up in my candles. Are all of the dye chips like that? I stirred for hours and finally gave up!
As of 10/20/2018:This product is discontinued and no longer available.
For a similar candle dye we recommend our Honeycomb Dye Blocks. It is more concentrated, so you can use less of the dye block to achieve the same color as the dye chips.
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.
I like to use this for Banana Bread. I plan on testing it with yellow for Lemon Pound Cake to see what happens. I use IGI 6006.
Mine left dark brown/black flecks in the wax that looked like dust swirled inside. I had cleaned everything with rubbing alcohol beforehand, heated the wax to 185, added the chips, stirred until dissolved, added the scent (removed from heat before.) Let it cool to 135 and poured. All my other ones have been done this way and no other issues except with this color. I don't really like it. I used 2 chips per pound and the color was a shade lighter than the picture (but was exactly what I was going for.)
In my GB464 wax, I just couldn't get the wax to look as dark as the picture. It basically amounted to off-white with 1 chip in 1lb of wax, and a tad darker with 3 chips in 1lb. Very disappointed.
These little chips work great. I used 2 chips per pound of GB 464 soy wax. I dissolved it at 185, the color was very even I would definitely use again!!
