Purple 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:
- Cost Effective - One ounce will color approximately 125 lbs. of wax.
- Even Dispersion – Simply add the desired amount and stir lightly. Liquid candle dyes are less prone to leaving dye particles in wax from not fully dissolving.
- Usage Control - Our liquid candle dyes come in an amber glass bottle with a liquid dropper for ease of use. The recommended use is 7 drops per lb. of wax for a medium shade, using less for lighter shades and more for deeper colors.
- Customization – Liquid candle dyes can be blended with other colors to create unique, custom colors.
- Versatility – Our liquid candle dyes can be used in paraffin, soy, and gel wax.
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.
Purple is gorgeous!

I have tried lots and lots of dyes and all of FC’s dye are superior quality! I know this because I’ve used some pretty crappy ones from one supplier in particular and thought they were good until I tried FC’s. That other brand almost always caused dye dots (dots in the wax that sometimes resembles mold) and were very weak. FC’s dyes have never given my wax dye dots and they are always true to color and bright and beautiful!!! I love all the dyes so much that I now get the 4 ounce economy size of all of them! These bottles are very economical because of their concentrated nature! These bottles last and last! Don’t settle for dye dots and weak colors! Get the big bottles of FC liquids and you can thank me later for the tip

First, the color itself is beautiful; the purple shades you see here accurately reflect what it looks like in real life (using soy wax, in my case). While the price is a dollar or so more expensive than other coloring brands I've seen, you are more than getting what you pay for. 3 drops in 3.5 ounces of wax was enough to color it to a rich, vibrant purple. Another (cheaper) brand I was using took over 35 drops in the same amount and type of wax to achieve a similar shade. I'm already running low on that brand, but the color I bought here should last me a long, long time. Highly recommended!
