Turn a plain candle into a work of art with our liquid marbling dyes. All you need are the dyes, a bucket of water, paper towel and creative imagination! The dyes float on top of the water, as you submerge your candle the dyes stick to the sides creating spectacular patterns. Keep the candle submerged whilst you move the dye away from the centre, pull the candle out slowly and see what you got!
The dye will be tacky, so allow the candle to dry and finish with a coat of our varnish to seal the pattern in.
Not only does this marbling dye work on candles, but it can be used on card, wood, paper, plastic, metal, earthenware, terracotta and even Styrofoam. Each bottle has a dropper dispenser for accurate placement.
NB: We have been asked if it is safe to burn the candle after it has had marbling dye used for decoration. Here is the reply we received from the actual manufacturers of the dye:
'your candles with the marbling on them can be lit after at least 24 hours. During this time, the solvents would have escaped.'
and from our supplier:
'The Marmorier colors are located on the outer layer of the candle and are applied only thinly. By burning, the paint mixes with the liquid wax and burns with no residue.'
