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.

No waiting or straining is necessary because the dye compound is pre-dissolved!

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.
  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.

Please note that this item is non-returnable.

All TransTint dye colors are intermixable to produce custom shades.

Product Reviews

  1. Great Product

    Review by Glenn McCarron

    I had a powder blue mix from a different vendor but I was not happy with the greenish undertone it showed. I ordered the Blue Transtint and was extremely satisfied with the color and ease of use. Veneer Suppies was extremely quick with my order and their pricing was excellent, especially for shipping to Canada.

  2. Best Dyes on the Market!

    Review by Henry Schwartz

    This dye is tricky to get just right, but the results are amazing. The wood rings I apply these dyes to always result in a cats-eye effect. Simply stunning!

  3. Awesome Service

    Review by David Vicars

    Product better than expected, and fast shipping. Buy your dye's from Veneer supplies, you wont regret it. The price is right, you wont find a better price anywhere, trust me I searched. I love the follow up I received after my purchase, and will buy all my dye's from Veneer in the future thanks.

  4. Quality Service

    Review by John Scanlan

    Joe describes items to the "T". The website has so much more than just products and helps select the right product for the job. Trans Tint is the best dye for staining woods whether directly or in a finish. The longevity of the color is critical for anyone building quality furniture and crafts that are expected to last decades. Easy to use and dissolves in almost any solution. Just be sure to wear gloves because it will stain your fingers! Fast and accurate service so no production time is lost. My go-to site for veneer and woodworking tools or products. Best prices I could find.

  5. Love the product, the price and the people!

    Review by Shawn Wagoner

    I used different TransTint colors to make some pendant necklaces and they turned out great. I had seen the colors "pop" in videos but now I've seen it up close. I love the product.
    The transaction with was excellent as well. The price was the lowest I could find and the time to receive the goods simply couldn't be beat. I'll be a repeat customer!

  6. Great prices

    Review by Ross Denny

    Excellent pricing and fast and fair shipping from Veneer Supplies. Closest Transtint to me is an hour away, I can't drive and get it myself and get a better price even with shipping. Thank you Joe.

  7. The Gold Standard

    Review by Nelson Lopez

  12. Review from Tampa, FL

    Review by Jay Lathrop

    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 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.

  13. Review from Greeneville, TN

    Review by Erik Haagensen

    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.
