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.

For a similar candle dye we recommend our Red 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.

I had to use 4 dye chips in about a pound and a half of GB464 to get the bold red color in the picture. I agree with other reviewers that you will get small pieces in there if you don't mix extremely well.
Does not mix as well as others. Sometimes I get tiny pieces of dark red/black gunk leftover, even after mixing more than normal. I have switched to making my own red, or cutting this one in half or shredding it so it dissolves better.
I used only 1 dye chip in 1 pound of soy wax, I achieved a good red color, but not a true red color.
I used 1 red chip in 1lb of paraffin wax. More of a deep pink flower, kind of a summer color. I will try 2 color chips next.
I like the idea of Dye Chips as opposed to carving amounts from blocks. This one will take 2 chips per pound to get a real red. One chip actually makes a nice pink in Ecosoya PB.
