Quality dye to colour your candles, a 10g block of solid candle dye is enough to colour 20 votive candles or 1KG of wax - the usual allowance is 1g dye per 100g wax. Obviously, more dye gives a deeper colour.
Most dye names are self explanatory, however a few need a little description! Autumn Red is a rusty red. Windsor Red is a pinky red, strawberries come to mind! Midnight Blue is an extremely versatile dye, depending on how much you use will result in a pale blue candle or a deeper blue. Mixed with Meadow Green the blue is interesting, a sea blue/green depending on which dye you allow to dominate! Meadow green is a lovely apple green. Fuchsia is a bright purple/pink.
All dyes can be blended when you are experimenting with colours, and they will all result in a deeper colour if a higher ratio of dye to wax is used. For example, for a really deep, rich red I blend 25% plum purple and 75% windsor red.
