TransTint, dark walnut, 2 oz.
TransTint® Dyes developed by Jeff Jewitt, are a solution of metal-complex dyes in a special solvent that offers the finisher many unique options in applying the colors. TransTint® Dyes can be used with water, solvent or they can be added directly to a finish.
To use the dye as a stain:
Mix with tap/distilled water for an economical, nonflammable stain.
Mix with alcohol for a fast-drying, non-grain-raising stain.
No waiting or straining is necessary because the dye is pre-dissolved.
The suggested mix ratio is 2 oz. dye per 1/2 gallon solvent (increase or decrease ratio to suit need). Dye solutions can be applied by brush, rag, spray, or sponge. When using a water-reduced dye, a pre-grain raising is advisable -- apply the dye with an abrasive pad like maroon Mirlon.
To use as a finish toner: One of TransTint® Dyes most unique features is its compatibility with a wide range of finishing mediums. Simply add the dye concentrate directly to shellac, water-based finishes, solvent lacquers, and catalyzed varnish or lacquers. Add any amount up to 1 oz. per quart. All dye colors are inter-mixable to produce custom shades.
NOTE: These dyes work well for "Sunburst" finishes. Suggested colors
