    Highly concentrated liquid dyes dissolve readily into waxes including paraffin, vegetable waxes and gel. .05% is equivalent to 7 drops of dye per pound of wax and will yield a medium shade. One ounce of dye will color approximately 125 lbs of wax at the .05% level, and up to 625 lbs at the .01% level. By mixing the various dyes, you can produce an infinite number of colors. The colors shown are approximations and actual results will vary with the wax and additives used. We cannot guarantee precise results under all circumstances, so experimentation and careful note-taking are encouraged.

    Bottles include glass pipet dropper for convenient handling.

    These dyes have a characteristic smell to them due to being highly concentrated, but it is usually undetectable in finished scented candles when used at normal concentrations.

    I used 3 drops of dye for about 3 1/2 lb of soy wax. I'm not quit sure since I added more wax after it started melting. I ended up with a nice pastel baby pink color. I recommend trying the method someone else mention about dipping a stick or something into the wax and letting it cool to help adjust color. I used old takeout chopsticks.

    I have had the same bottle of red dye for months and have had to problem with it drying out at all, and I use quite a bit of it so the bottle is always being opened and closed. The test method I use for color is a few drops of colored wax on a white saucer I have. I almost always get an accurate representation of the color I want and clean up is a breeze. Using the saucer, I can see side by side the color progression as I add color to get where I want it to be.

    Peak's liquid color dyes are excellent!! One concern with the red dye that has been noticed is the red dye(only red thus far) tends to dry very quickly over time (even after capping correctly between uses) and you are left with red flake at the bottom of your containers. It can be fixed by extra stirring, higher mixing temp, or keep your red dye in stock and rotated!

    I've used this dye for pink and darker pink candles so far and it's wonderful. The color is beautiful and you don't even need much. It's easy to test how rich it is by dipping a spoon or knife into the hot wax and then letting it cool especially on wax paper. That gives you a fairly close approximation of the color. Plus, the dye bottle is always full to the rim and it doesn't take many drops to get the color you want depending on the amount of wax you're heating. I do smaller amounts of one or two pounds maximum.
