I'm kind of disappointed because when I open the bottle it smells like acetone. That can't be good for the candle? Looking at the reviews I don't see anyone who has had the same problem. Is this something I should be concerned about? Color wise its perfect for any shade willing to achieve!

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.

Hi! A member of the Support Team has reached out to assist.
If you are blending small batches, touch the dropper tip towards the bottom of a clean popsicle stick and some color will come out. Don't squeeze an entire drop onto the stick, just let a little skiff of color flow from the dropper. Barely dunk and instantly remove the stick from the melted wax, blend it in, test the color, and if you want it darker, dunk the stick again, swirl it around, and more color will go into the wax. I use Ivory liquid dye for coloring very pale ivory to almost "white" candles. They come out the perfect shade. Some small batches may only take a skiff, or 2 skiffs, but not a full drop especially if it is a very small batch with just a few candles. That is how to get around using a full drop of color.
I love the liquid dye so far used it in my last batch and just a drop made the perfect ivory color this will go a lot further than a color block would’ve. The cost is more expensive but it will be cheaper in the end! Awesome job cCS
This dye is very difficult to manage with paraffin wax.If you use 1 drop in 3 lbs of wax, it comes out darker than the label.
I loved this ivory color for my soaps i made 4 lbs of soy wax and added 16 drops and created a nice cream color highly recommended!
I used soy wax with this ivory liquid dye for my "Snickerdoodle" fragrance. Just one drop into 16 oz of melted soy wax produced the first lighter color shown on the picture. It was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend for a nice ivory color.
The people who are complaining are using way too much, to get a light creamy color it's one drop per pound, not one dropperful! I used 3 drops in 2 lbs of the harmony wax, and got a beautiful cream color. 3 drops per lb was a cappuccino color.
used less then the amount given on the directions - the color turned out a orangish brown? how can you achieve a creamy white? any suggestions>>>
I was looking for a cream color for my candles and got this one. I just tested it and love it! I'm using GoldenWax 464 soy wax, so I put one drop of dye into 5.4 ounces of wax (approximately 1/3 pound or triple the dye strength on the bottle) and the color is perfect.
I have made two batches of tarts using this dye, hoping to achieve an ivory color and I was unsuccessful both times. The first time I used the recommended amount on the bottle and they came out dark brown. The second time I used half the recommended amount (half of a dropper) and they still came out the same dark brown color. While I can appreciate a little goes a long way with this liquid dye, it makes it impossible to achieve the lighter of the two shades on the bottle.
makes a great ivory color
I was looking for a sand color - the lighter shade in the picture matches exactly what I was looking for and my candles look awesome.
Very disappointed. I used the suggestions on the bottle and the shade was much darker, almost a tan. Not at all what I expected. I will not be able to use this when making a small batch of candles as I can not add less than 1 drop. Not as good as the other liquid dyes that candlescience offers.
I was sorely disappointed. I was looking for white, ivory is white, or so I thought. I opened the bottle and thought, this isn't white. Then I though, maybe if I place a very small amount on a papertowel....well lets just say it wasn't what I was looking for. Sometimes I just want a pure white look for certain things. This wasn't it. Oh, I will use it, but not what I expected. I also wanted to be able to really lighten some of my colors.
