Good pigment

Reviewer: A viewer from San Jose, CA, USA 11/11/15

I honestly don't know why most of these reviews say they have a hard time getting red-- I've never had any trouble with this dye! It's also important to keep in mind when working with red dye that, even if it's highly concentrated, red dye is simply not as potent as other dyes so you'll inevitably have to use more than if you used blue.

Did not come out red!

Reviewer: A viewer from Central Indiana 12/09/14

Making Mulled Cider candles. Directions for the coloring indicated I should use 6 drops red and 2 brown for 4 pounds of wax. Since I was using only 2 pounds of wax, I used half of the prescribed amount. The color was not as deep as I wanted. Will have to try another batch, using more dye to achieve the color I thought it should be.

Horrible dye

Reviewer: A viewer from New Jersey, USA 07/24/13

I am tired of loosing money with this dye. I have tried everything and the color is pink. How can you make PINK apple cinnamon candles. It's suppose to be red! Why do they advertise red when it never comes out red. I will never buy this dye color again!

difficulty achieving RED

Reviewer: A viewer from Webb City, MO US 06/26/13

I really love these liquid dyes. The only problem (aside from the funky smell that everyone on here laments) is that the dang red will not come out RED no matter how much or how little i add to the wax. its always dark pinkish or maroon or something. Has anyone else had trouble getting true RED? I'm about to lose my mind over here. I've even tried adding varying levels of tiny bits of yellow to offset the pinky tone and my red looks nothing like the nice candy apple RED shown in the example photo here. HELP!
