What are liquid dyes?

Liquid dyes are an easy & convenient way to colour your products, most commonly used in candle wax. Liquid dyes are very highly concentrated & are available in a wide variety of colours, you can mix these colours, which means your colour palette is endless! Liquid dyes should be stored under ambient conditions with containers kept closed.

 

When should I use liquid dyes?

Liquid dyes are best used if you like consistency; they come in 15ml dropper style bottles, so it’s very easy to record your measurements & therefore consistency will never be a problem. You can use liquid dyes in all vegetable waxes & paraffin wax too. You may find you need to use more colouring in soya wax candles as oppose to paraffin wax. Find a starter colour shade guide below:
