Product Description

top10.pngA 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.

    I've tried the red, yellow and blue and am absolutely delighted with the colours

  4. Pale but pretty..

    this was a nice christmasy colour, but needed to be used in much greater quantities than advised - first lot of container candles looked more suitable for a wedding than a Christmas table!

  5. Great Dyes

    I have used a number of these dyes and they are all great! The autumn red gives a gorgeous deep red colour and the antique ivory is lovely for vanilla and honey scented candles!

    the Windsor red is a lucious strawberry colour & I can recommend it

  7. Lavender dye

    Posted by Lucy on 21st May 2013

    I bought 10g of the lavender dye and it was sufficient to make 8 tea cup candles, in differing sized cups, using 1050g of wax. The colour is even, with a lovely creaminess, and just what I was after. As I wanted the shade to be the same across all of the cups, I took a bit of time to melt all of my wax in a couple of containers and then poured and stirred it together, to make sure the dye blended properly. I'm really pleased with the result and would use this colour again.

  8. First class!

    Produces lovely subtle creamy shades. Delighted with it!

  9. AMAZING!! Really adds a special touch to your candles!

    I have now made candles in a bright pink, soft pink, turquoise, and cream. I enjoy every shade I have ordered so far, and the finish is perfect every time. I look forward to ordering different colours in the future. Always exciting everytime you try a new shade :D
