Wanted to do a forest inspired candle and used 8 drops of Hunter Green in 1 lb of soy wax, but it came out a blue-green (almost dark turquoise) instead. The color itself is vibrant and beautiful, just not exactly what I wanted! Might try the Key West green next.

Hunter Green Liquid Dye for candle wax produces a color ranging from a green jade to a deep hunter green depending on usage. Your actual experience may vary depending on what type of wax you use and the amount of dye used. We encourage you to experiment.
In soy, deep, rich colors are challenging and standard dye amounts create a washed-out, pastel color. They require 2-3 times the dye that paraffin requires, sometimes more.
- A 1 oz bottle can color up to 100 lb of soy wax or 200 lb paraffin to a medium shade.
- A 4 oz bottle can color up to 400 lbs of soy wax or 800 lbs to a medium shade.
Note: 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.

All of my dyes come from CS, mixes well, no chemical smell, great colors in soy and paraffin
I used this in Comfort Blend (IGI 4627) and it was such a gorgeous shade of green. Highly recommended for all pine scents. Very happy with CandleScience's liquid dyes. Will buy again.
Tried this dye in soy wax in a variety of concentrations up to 10 drops per lb soy wax and could only attain a seafoam greenish blue. Could not get up to a darker forest green in soy wax and found the key west green dye to be a more natural shade of green compared to this dye, at least in soy wax.
Candle Science is the only place I buy my dyes for soy and paraffin candles. It does take more for soy versus paraffin. A tip that I've always done is after you add your FO, add your dye, stir well then drop a few drops on a paper plate, if too light, add more dye. Take notes! (I add my FO before my dye because some FO's do discolor dyes and I want a true color test)
I used 5 drops in 14 ounces of GW464 soy. Expected to see a nice dark Hunter Green, but ended up with a bright Seafoam Green. Very very disappointed, and hoping the other colors I received don't perform the same way :(
