  • Powdered Dye

    Hi all,

    I bought a job lot of candle-making equipment from eBay a while ago and am just working my way through it. They had some powdered candle dyes which she said to me to 'only use a little'; well I had a go at colouring some chunks and she wasn't kidding. However, I did notice it had a bit of an odd odour.

    Anyway, I wondered if anyone had used powdered dye and what their experiences were. On one website it says powdered dyes need at least 1% stearin added to the wax for the dye to mix properly. I didn't know this but luckily I was using blended wax.

    It seems quite cheap and it goes a very long way so I'm wondering what the catch is.

    Any other little quirks of this stuff?
