****Karner Blue and San Bruno Elfin are BACK! Please test in small amounts as there may have been a slight change in color due to reformulation.****
Flutter Dyes are the cutest dye on the market! They also make replicating your colors as easy as one, two, three. Using 3 Flutter Dyes per pound of wax will give you our "base" shade. The base color is the shade that the Flutter Dye was created to represent. But you can go darker or lighter to achieve many more shades.
If you want a lighter shade simply cut the Flutter Dye in half.

We do not recommend using more than 17 Flutter Dyes per pound of wax as wick clogging may occur.
