Our high quality liquid dyes are very soluble in wax and contain no particles of insoluble matter or sediment, sometimes found when using powdered dyes. Using liquid dyes reduces the chance of color shifting after a candle is made because of their superior solubility characteristics. Our liquid dyes are extremely concentrated. Although colors vary, on average, 1 ounce of liquid dye is enough to color over 100 pounds of wax to a medium shade. Many different shades can be made by adjusting the amount you use.
