Red Liquid Candle Dye
Liquid candle dyes are a great way for coloring wax and achieving different shades of a desired color. The benefits of using liquid candle dyes include:
As with all candle making projects, we always recommend testing to achieve desired results.
Note: The shades shown in the picture are approximate and can vary with amount of dye and type of wax used. Other factors that can impact color when making candles include wax opacity, use of additives such as stearic acid, and fragrance.
Due to the wax consistencies, it is common for paraffin waxes to produce vibrant colors and soy waxes to produce pastel colors.
Liquid candle dyes may have a slight smell in the bottle that is not noticeable in finished candles. Colors do not separate in storage, but minimal shaking is recommended prior to use.

I put 140 drops into 20 pounds of wax. What i got was a dark hot pink. It is pretty though, if you don't want a true red.
Not sure if i should have added more drops to get to red.

This liquid candle dye is highly concentrated so you get more out of it. Add a little or a little more until you get your perfect shade. This candle dye is so easy to use!
