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.

I have been using Transtints for a while now, and I have looked high and low for the best price. Veneersupplies.com prices and customer service are hands-down the best deal anywhere. I highly recommend anyone using Transtint products to go straight to Veneersupplies.com.

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.

Heard about Transtints at the Maryland Gourd festival
last spring. I now uses Transtint to color about 80
percent of our gourd art! The orange is great for Halloween projects.

Awesome product! Perfect application for my electric guitar. Worked great with the lacquer finish. Will buy more for my next guitar (which will be very soon!).

Outstanding product. I decided to use TransTint to dye my quilted maple bass guitar. I chose TransTint for its alleged ease of use and compatibility with other finishes. It does not disappoint in these or any other regards. Great results the first time. Great price on this from this site and I received it in one day! Highly recommended!!
