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 Steve Burke
I have used Transtint dyes now for over a year. I only wish I had been introduced to this product sooner!. I find that I am constantly using these dyes to tweak coloring to get just the look I am after. Mostly I find myself using them as an aid to conceal the coloring variance in different boards. They are also compatible with just about everything, a real plus. The only mistake I made in buying this product was not buying it at this particular web site, as this is the best pricing I have seen anywhere for this product (seriously....feel free to look around yourself). Needless to say, now that I have found this new source for Transtint dyes, I know where to buy them in the future.
