Black / smoke candy concentrate

Where are you guys getting your black candy concentrate from? I tried big brains and it seems to have a purple / blue tint.
Thanks

    Something is wrong then.. black is my goto candy. And it's always been BB's.

    I've gone thru a LOT of their bottles of it. Never had an issue.

    (I have to ask.. guns clean and whatever your mixing it in is not tainted?)

    I'd contact them, with a picture of what is going on...

    @DeviousDips I have used the OHW years ago it was thenright shade of black. I quit dealing with them years ago due to high shipping cost. I use HOK for every other color unfortunately they don't have black.

    I was using "Hot Hues" Charcoal Candy for a while and most recently went through Mark at OnPace Finishing and he got me some that works well also.

    I really would contact Dinette at BB and ask her about it.

    Who knows.. maybe the candy itself is tainted.. and if so, she will probably send you a new one...they are good like that.

    Hey there! Sorry that you're having an issue! The black is a pretty good seller but maybe it is a batch issue - all I can think of as to why it's purple/blue tinted. Can you send me some photos to our support email so everyone here can see it? [email protected] We'll fix the issue if we figure out that it's an issue!!

    I am wondering if you just did not mix enough into your clear (or midcoat) or sprayed it too light?

    I will see if I have any left and try it again. In the shop the big brain and dipspade looked black however both in the sun were blue or blue purple. Very old stock from when you guys first started selling candy. Customer didn't notice and loved it. I have a new project and was looking to see what's out there I need jet black
