I was making some candles the other day and I became really curious about what would happen if I threw some liquid RIT dye into the wax. This is how it turned out.
Since the liquid dye is water soluble, it doesn’t mix wax at all, creating a water and oil effect. If you mix it well — a fork worked best — you can break up the dye into little bubble and spread it through the wax.
As the wax cools, the dye starts to settle in. I found that if you cool it in the fridge the dye has a lot of time to settle towards the bottom, but if you cool it in the freezer the dye will remain a little more spread out.
Anyways, when I Googled it I wasn’t coming up with results that would show me what the end result would look like, so I thought I would make a record for the Internet.
