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.

Use more in soy

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.

1/2 per lb

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.

Not so red

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.

Great idea

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.
