Recently, Natures Garden Candle Making Supplies has added new candle colorants. These candle colorants will allow you to color your candles with new and exciting colors! So, what exactly are these colorants? Well, we now carry color blocks in 25 shades! So, for those that use liquid candle dyes, you might be wondering, “What is a color block?”. Well, a color block is a solid candle colorant use in candle making. What are the advantages of color blocks? Solid candle dyes are less messy than liquids. To use them, simply place a small amount of the candle colorant into your melted candle wax. Now, I should add, these should only be used in candles or wax melts, not body products. However, one color block dye will color about 15 pounds of candle wax in a medium shade. Below, you will see pictures each color block used in handcrafted wax tarts.
