Colonial Blue 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 used the GB 464 soy wax and took the suggestion above and used 5 chips per pound of wax. I was making baby shower candles and am very pleased with the color. It turned out the perfect "it's A Boy" blue!

I use GB 464, and 2 chips DEFINITELY did not turn the wax to this color. 2 chips per pound made it look like the "Bright Green" dye chips color. I just tried 5 per pound, and it's blue, but a dull light blue. I'm wondering if throwing a little regular blue into it too might help. I'm going to test the chips just a little more, but I just wanted to review so people have a little warning as to what to expect. I'm a little bummed because this color is pretty online.

I had to add 3 dye chips in my soy wax, but with 3 chips, I still didn't achieve the color in this picture. I would recommend not using soy wax with these chips. you will need to use a lot more chips.
