After reading the details and all the reviews, the color came out as expected. I used 3 chips in my 1lb of soy wax. As explained in the directions, "For soy ... you may need to use 2 or more chips to achieve a similar color." After reading the reviews and people having a hard time with the chip completely dissolving, I melted the chips with the soy flakes. The chips completely dissolved and the color came out matching the photo.
