For a similar candle dye we recommend our Orange 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. Fragrance Oil Recommendations: Peach Nectar, Blood Orange, Orange Blossom, Orange and Goji Berry Made in the USA
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.

Too pink

I ordered these chips about two months ago to start making fall scents and my candles turned out pastel pink. Used about 2-3 chips to 4 pounds of wax. It is a pretty color, but not good for the pumpkin souffle smell!

3-4 chips per pound in soy!

I've found with all of the dyes, as stated on this website, you have to increase the amount of any type of dye in soy. I use GB464 and had to use approximately 3-4 chips in 16-20oz of wax to get a true orange color. 1-2 chips per pound will be a light peach color that is nice if that's what you are looking for, but to get the color in the photo, you'll need 3-4 chips.

Nice Light Orange Color

Making candles in preparation for the upcoming autumn months, particularly October. I used 2 chips in 16oz of GB 464 and got a nice light orange color. Next time will try 3 chips to try to get it a touch darker. I used the Pumpkin Spice scent and the candles smell fantastic...can't wait to use them in my Halloween decor! 🎃

More of a peach color

I put 1 chip in 10 oz. of wax and it came out as a peach color, not really orange. It still worked for the scent I was using, but will buy a darker orange for other scents.

Very light

I ordered the sample pack. I used the chip in ecosoy excel and they were very pastel. I then tried two chips per pound. It came out a little brighter but not much.

A bit light

1 chip in 1 lb of GB 464 turned out more of a peach. Next time I will try 2 chips.
