A perfect introduction to using dye blocks at a great price! Each color comes in 2 blocks, which is plenty for small batches if you are testing the waters with colors. They did blend well in soy wax (tested 444 and 464 so far). When testing the purple, I chipped off small pieces no bigger than fingernail clippings to test how it would melt into 1 lb of wax. It's a bit like salting food: you can always add more but you can't take it out once there is too much. I highly recommend it if you're feeling creative.
