TransTints are formulated from light stable metallized acid dyes. They are more lightfast when compared to conventional aniline powdered type dye stains. This unique concentrated formulation allows the user great latitude in using the dye because it is compatible with a wide variety of finishing products. The dye can be mixed with either water or alcohol as a bare stain on wood - or added directly to finishing materials like shellac and lacquer to make toners or stains.
Please note that this item is non-returnable.
Stain and Finishing Options
When using any dye or colorant, we highly recommend testing your colors first on scraps or cut-offs along with your selected top coat before applying to your projects. TransTint Dyes are not for exterior use and can not be mixed with oil-based products.
All TransTint dye colors are intermixable to produce custom shades.

Review by Jeff Dennis
I was looking for some Transtint dyes for staining my guitar kit projects. I searched the net extensively and found VeneerSupplies.com. The price was great, approximately 40% less than the large box supplier. I'm generally weary about ordering from sites not associated with larger on-line retailers, but thought I would give Veneer Supplies a try. The experience was great. The communication was excellent and my goods arrived in a timely fashion. My thanks to Joe and the staff at VeneerSupplies.com for their excellent service and a great on-line ordering experience.

I love the Trans Tint dyes. I use them both to tint wood and tint intercoat clear auto paint that I spray on guitars.
Not only does VeneerSupplies.com have the best price their selection is phenomenal and they always seem to have the product in stock when I need it. This is always the first (and usually last) place I go when I need this dye as well as any other veneering supplies. Great customer service, great prices and fast shipping. You can't ask for much more.

Great price, shipped quick, excellent instructions from Joe. We used these to dye some utility shelves from reclaimed store shelves and weathered 2x4s and they are so colorful and fun. Nice to see the wood grain and weathering patterns in the wood through the rich color. Mixed great with other dye colors, we applied two coats in water based polyurethane.

Order came quickly, at a great price, and in perfect condition! Website is easy/accurate, and Joe was a pleasure to work with. TransTint is the industry standard of guitar finishing.

The clarity you get from dyes is fantastic. You may never go back to stain again. You get any tone you want without loosing the grain. The price here was the best on the net when I got them on sale. And the service can't be beat. Ordered at 9:20 P.M. PST, shipped 9 hours later. Fantastic!
