Melon Dye Chips
Candle dye chips are an easy way to consistently create many different shades for coloring candles. The benefits of using candle dye chips include:
- Cost Effective – One chip will color approximately 1 lb. of wax.
- No Mess or Spills – When using dye chips, you don't have to worry about spills or accidentally dripping too much dye into your melted wax.
- Selection of Pre-Made Colors – Candle dye chips come in many unique pre-made colors, allowing you to create the same color each time without blending.
- Usage Control – Each chip can be broken into smaller pieces if desired. The recommended use is 1 chip per lb. of wax for a medium shade, using less for lighter shades and more for deeper colors.
- Customization – Candle dye chips can be blended with other colors to create additional unique colors.
- Versatility – Candle dye chips can be used in paraffin and soy wax.
As with all candle making projects, we always recommend testing to achieve desired results. Once the candle dye chip has been added to the melted wax, we recommend stirring thoroughly to ensure the dye chip fully disperses in the wax.
Note: The shade shown in the color image is 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.

We used 1 chip to 1 pound of soy wax and loved the color. It was a bit lighter than what is shown above but it was perfect for us. Then we took a full melon chip and mixed it with half of a cinnamon to create a different shade and loved that as well.
We really like your dye chips, they melt so nicely and turn our scented shapes into pretty colors.
Great Cotton Candy Pink

2 chips per pound in GB464 turned out a great cotton candy pink. Love the color, but not what I was expecting from a melon chip
