Orchid 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.

I just tried this dye because it was on clearance. At that price I couldn't resist. I am so pleased! It is a beautiful, purplish color. Like a true Orchid. I used Lavender scent with it. They turned out very beautiful. Will be reordering before it all sells out. Wish you weren't discontinuing this color. I'd like to keep it in my line of candles. Thanks Candlescience! Loved it!

I have used many colors in paraffin, all true to color. This was the only one that turned yellow in the sun. Yuck

Used 2 chips in 12oz GB 464 at 180Â°F and the color came out pretty much near the photo. Of course in soy it was more "pastel" than the shiny votive pictured, but color was fairly true.

I used this in soy wax and it is NOT pink colored as it appears here, it is very much light purple. I was very disappointed that it was not pink as I had hoped.

I ordered 11 different colors of dye chips and used them all in Golden Brands 464 and this was the only one that turned out badly... All the other colors were great, this color looked beautiful while in liquid form but the wax turned a yellow gray color on all the edges after it had set up
