Aztec dyes

Recommended Posts

I finally got the time to start testing, Got everything going, started to put dye drops in and one, then two, then squirt. I was so mad. Anyway, my black cherry candles are hot pink. Any idea how many drops of their red die to the pound of soy 464 to get a rich red color? Should I have put couple drops of black in? thanks for any help

I'm using the dye from either Peaks or Candle Science, on average I use 2 drops per pound, 3 if i want a dark color but in my short experience, less color is better as to how the candle burns. If it is a test candle, why not leaves as is. Or, use it a color "chips", this works great for me if I want less strong colors, some times even a drop of liquid color is too much.
