We recommend grating your dye block into shavings and adding a small amount at a time to your melted wax, usually after you have added your fragrance. Dab a spot of wax onto a white surface (such as a porcelain plate) to test the density of your colour. Keep adding dye until you are happy with the colour.
Each Dye Block measures 5cm x 3cm and one block will colour up to 3kg of wax to a medium shade. Use more for darker colours & less for lighter, it is fine to mix colours to create your own shades.
If your candle is to be exposed to sunlight or harsh lighting consider adding a UV colour inhibitor.
Very deep dark colours (especially black) can be difficult to achieve. Consider using our Liquid Candle Dye for a deeper concentration of colour in your candle.
