3-Pack of Firefly Colored Lamp Oil Dye
You can easily color your lamp and candle oil using our super-concentrated liquid candle dyes. No longer do you need to purchase lots of different-colored oils – Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Purple, Aqua, Pink Colored Lamp Oil . Do it yourself easily. Watch the video to see how easy it really is. You will receive 3, 10 ml- bottles of dye, about 1/3 oz. This is a very economical way to color your lamp oil without spending a fortune. We’ve successfully colored Lampe Berger Fuel, Paraffin Lamp Oil, Safe & Green Lamp Oil, CLEAN Fuel, alcohol, ethenol and kerosene.
You will need paper towels, 2-3 wooden toothpicks, oil-based color dye (which you just found!), an oil candle or oil lamp and Firefly Lamp Oil. 😉
Step 1) Create a small protected work area with paper towels.
Step 2) Fill your oil candle 3/4 full with Firefly Lamp Oil or just add the dye to the bottle of fuel.
Step 3) Select your color. Over the paper towel coat the tip of the toothpick with a small amount of dye. You can always add more. If too much, simply wipe on the paper towel
Step 4) Dip the toothpick into the oil candle and shake to incorporate the dye. Continue to add color until you get the desired depth of color. If creating a secondary color, simply use another toothpick with a new color and dip into the oil candle.
Note: The toothpick method works great for coloring small amounts of fuel. It lets you easily control the depth of color. If you are coloring a 16-oz. or 32-oz. bottle, you’ll probably want to use a full drop or more depending on the depth of color you prefer.
A Word of Caution ? Accidents do happen. The dye will stain clothing, skin, countertops, etc. So here are some tips if you spill the dye. Tackle the stain immediately. Lacquer thinner will remove the stain from hard surfaces; petroleum jelly and coconut oil from the skin; and non-acetate nail polish remover or toothpaste on a nail brush for under the nails. Clothing? An oil-based stain remover should do it. Just be careful!
One more thing… This is lamp oil dye which colors the lamp oil. It will not color the flame.
Yellow, Blue and Red dyes are primary colors in that they cannot be produced by mixing any other colors. They are pure hues.
Are produced mixing equal parts of two Primary Colors. There are 3 secondary colors.
