Color Block Information

Candle Dye Blocks

Welcome to this unique dye block system for coloring candles. The exact amount of dye has been calculated into each block to make each color in the color chart below. You can make several colors and shades with the same block just by varying the volume of wax with a single Dye Block.

This versatile system is easy to use! Note: The base that the dye is in is vegetable wax not paraffin like most dye blocks. The dye in the blocks is not vegetable based. As far as we know there is no dye for candle making that is made form plant materials.

  • Choose the color you would like your candle to look like from the Dye Block Chart. Follow the direction / Recommendations under each color patch.
  • There are 27 Color Blocks to choose from. The last two blocks, #29 and #30 are additives that prevent the dyes from fading.
  • Each of the 27 Dye Blocks produces several colors or shades by increasing or decreasing the ration of color in the wax. In all, more that 75 colors can be made with only the 27 Dye Blocks in the color chart.
  • Virtually all the candles in the marketplace are represented in the color chart.
  • Endless more unique colors however, can be achieved by mixing parts of one Dye Block with another Dye Block in wax.
  • All these Dye Color Blocks are compatible with each other in wax. They are Pigment Free and Vegetable Based.
  • The Dye Blocks work well in all kinds of paraffin or naturally derived waxes. They may look somewhat different in different kinds of wax.
  • Looking for a darker or dirtier color. Add a small piece of Black Block #27 to your dyed wax.
  • Want to darken a color and make it look richer in tone add either Brown Block #23 or Brown Block #25.
  • ALL DYES FADE over a period of time. Light color shades appear to fade faster than strong dark color shades. Sometimes light colors fade in only a few hours when they are sitting in the sun.
  • If you use ultraviolet light absorber Block #29 or #30 as directed, you will extend the light fastness of your candles dramatically. Perhaps to several months vs several hours or days.
  • Want even better light stability? Use 2 or even 3 blocks in 5 lbs of wax.
  • Color representations in the color chart are meant to be a guideline only. Viewing the colors on your monitor may be slightly different than when mix them. Make sure to do a color test before adding your scent to the wax mixture.
  • While every effort is made to make every batch the same they can very. There is no guarantee that they will match. Check each batch with your own color samples.
