Brown dye review

Reviewer: A viewer from Milan, OH US 09/02/06

Brown contains small specks of red and possibly other colors. It is a nice chocolate brown color, however, you must stir, stir, stir!! Then when you think you can pour, stir again. Used in pure soy wax.

Note from NG Customer Service: You might want to try putting the powdered dye into melted stearic acid prior to adding it to your wax. The brown color is made up of red, blue, and yellow dye pigments, and needs to be "wetted" in stearic acid so that they disperse nicely in wax. Try that and see if it doesn't solve the issue you are having. Have a wonderful day!

Excellent Color

Reviewer: A viewer from Illinois 09/16/12

I bought this in brown to make a chocolate covered cherry apothocary jar candle. Oh, it's perfect. I did add the powder to some melted stearic acid and it mixed right in with the wax, not specs, no crazy stirring. I just used a little and the color was perfect looked just like chocolate. I absolutely love this and if you need a darker color use this it's awesome!!

Works Well

Reviewer: A viewer from Fortuna, CA US 04/26/08

I used 2 ounces of the blue dye in about 200lbs of wax. As I use crock pots to melt the wax there is no exact way for me as the pace I produce candles to measure just how much is needed. So I guess and make them a bit darker then needed.

with the powder, you have to continue to stir, which is not so bad because you want everything to be well blended. they are so concentrated i mean you really have to pour a few specks and it would look as if you poured two spoons full or something. i love this way better than the liquid dye. a little goes such a long way one ounce will last about a year or more.
