Liquid Candle Dyes
Our liquid candle dyes are the most soluble colourant available. Use them when you want a candle to be dyed throughout or for creating a full range of colors for stains and varnishes.
When measuring dyes, measure by weight or by volume—do not alternate method of measurement between batches. Measuring the same product by weight or by volume will give you different results, so be consistent with the chosen method that suits your manufacturing process. The recommended temperature for manufacturing with dyes is about or about 85ºC.Working at higher temperatures or prolonged exposure to heat can degrade the colours, causing fading or colour alteration to appear. Dyes should be stored under ambient conditions with containers kept closed.

Candle dyes - how much should I use?
The dyes are supplied in 10 g bags and should be used at 0.2%, therefore a 10 g bag of dye will colour 5 kg of paraffin wax. Vegetable waxes may require a higher loading. In order for the dye to fully dissolve, it should be added to molten wax of 65°C-70°C, although some dyes (such as red shades) may need the wax to be slightly hotter. We recommend to not to exceed 80°C Please note the colours may differ from screen to screen, we always recommend testing your chosen colour before placing any bulk orders.
Supplies for Candles offers two different types of highly concentrated candle dyes. Our dye flakes are manufactured by Bekro in Germany. They are regarded as the leading manufacturer of candle dyes throughout Europe. We also supply a range of highly concentrated liquid candle dyes which are the most soluble colourant available. Liquid dyes are easily mixed together to create every colour on the spectrum. Both types of dyes perform equally as well and is down to personal preference which you chose.
