How do I get a darker colored candle when using soy wax?

Soy wax is naturally an opaque milky white color. For this reason, it is more difficult to achieve a deeper soy wax candle color such as dark red or navy blue. There are a few alternatives for resolving this problem. Some candle makers just leave the color out of their soy wax candles. For more vibrant colors we recommend using dye blocks. Another option is to double the amount of dye chips or liquid dye you are using. If you choose to add more dye, be careful not to add too much as this will interfere with the performance of the wick and the burnability of the candle.
