Ivory Liquid Dye for candle wax produces a color ranging from ivory to tan 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.

Fragrance Oil Recommendations: Blueberry Cheesecake, Clean Cotton, Coconut, Lush Linen, Creme Brulee, Juniper Breeze, Sea Salt and Orchid

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.

Turned my candles orange, only did 2 drops per pound, now I wasted $30 bucks in product.

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!

Easy to Blend Ivory Colored Candles

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

Always comes out dark

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.

Works Great, Use Little

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.

Great color

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.
