I use this color for 5 of my candles and I love it! You can add a little extra blue to make it more rich, you can add black to make it more of a gray-blue, you can add white to make it a soft navy. I really love this one
As of 10/24/2018:This product is discontinued and no longer available.
For a similar candle dye we recommend our Navy Blue Dye Blocks. It is more concentrated, so you can use less of the dye block to achieve the same color as the 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.

Absolutely love the color. Very rich and beautiful navy blue.
This should not even be sold as a Navy Blue. Go back to the drawing board and start over. you should remove this from the site
This is definitely NOT Navy. Very disappointed. In myself. I should have read the reviews first. Don't be like me.
The color is more like this: http://www.art-paints.com/Paints/Spray/Montana/Hardcore/Light-Grey/Light-Grey.gif
At least with 1 chip in 16 oz. of wax, haven't tried multiple. It isn't very dark, but still a good color -- just know that it is significantly lighter than regular blue.
No matter how many chips I use per pound of wax, they turn my wax into a dirty-looking grey color with barely a hint of blue. I'm sure I'll end up using what I've already purchased if I ever need a bluish grey, but they definitely fail at actually being blue. 2 stars just because I managed to mix one with a hint of red to make a nice grey tone lavender.
I used 3 of these chips in 1 lb of soy wax, and the color was still no where near Navy blue. It turned out more of a slate/grey blue.
