Product Description


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

  1. Water-Based Dye Stain: Mix with tap or distilled water for an economical, non-flammable stain.
  2. Non-Grain Raising Dye Stain: Mix with alcohol for a fast-drying, non-grain raising stain. No waiting or straining is necessary because the dye is pre-dissolved.
  3. Hybrid Dye Stain: Mix with a 50/50 solution of water and alcohol for a user-friendly wipe-on stain.

More Information

  • pg-transtints-quote.gifSuggested mix ratio is 2 oz. dye per 1/2 gallon solven but this ratio can be increased or decreased to adjust the color and saturation as needed.
  • Dye solution can be applied by brush, rag, spray, or sponge. When using a water-reduced dye, a pre-grain raising is advisable.
  • One of TransTint's most unique features is their compatibility with a wide range of finishing mediums. Simply add the dye concentrate directly to shellac, water-base finishes, solvent lacquers, and catalyzed varnish or lacquers. Add any amount up to 1 oz. per quart.

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.

    My order of Trans Tint dye stains arrived right on schedule. What's more, the shipment was packed really well, with plenty of packing material and ziplock bags for the stains. Everything was done right and it was nice to get a personal note from Joe as well!

    Transtints make up wonderful colours and are simple to mix with either shellac mixed with alcohol, alcohol, or water. I use it for musical instrumentsand the results are excellent.

    This was by far the cheapest price I found for Transtint dyes on the internet. I found that Joe's service at Veneer Supplies was excellent and customer friendly.

    For best results as a toner, dissolve in a very small amount of acetone or other "hot" solvent before adding to your finish.

    Test everything first - quantity, color, write yourself a recipe, measure very carefully because this dye is thin and comes out of the container very quickly, put a pinhole in the top - don't cut it off, add a drop at a time, wear gloves, repeat: wear nitrile gloves. Downsides: this is a metallic base dye and any liquid, including perspiration or oil from your hands, that touches it before a finish is applied, will give a color change. Color change can be sanded out with 400 paper. Use it by-the-book and you can achieve beautiful results. A professional-grade superior product. FYI, solvent base products are not available in CA and this is as close as I have found to one that will combine with acrylic lacquer and it's solvent: Xylene / Xylol, but works best(dissolves more completely) first dissolved in a small amount of acetone. Note specs for what materials it is NOT compatible with. Works well in acrylic lacquer satin finish contrary to their labeling. Mix a quantity, by recipe, NOT in the full can of finish. Very difficult to lighten or "un-dye" after application.

    Transtints are simple and excellent. I personally like to mix it into a 1 lb cut of dewaxed shellac. It works great in many different applications and combinations such as with finish coats or over dyes.

    Best part is that Veneer Supplies.com is the cheapest that I have found Transtint anywhere. And the 4 bottles for $6 Priority Mail shipping is very fair. Unlike at Rockler where they take very generous handfuls of cash out your pockets with fake discount deals and then proceed to commit larceny against you with there odd 'slide-rule' shipping costs where the shipping costs is based on the amount of the order and not the weight of the items shipped.
