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 and Great Seller

    Review by Jim Argo

    I've been ordering this product from for many years now. The product does everything I need it to. Joe is very helpful and always willing to answer any questions I may have.

  2. Great Choice to Darken an Already Finished Cabinet

    Review by Gregg Horcher

    I needed to darken a cabinet that's been stained with an oil based product. Just rough mixed 2 colors in shellac and got the perfect color! Couple coats of urethane and done. Customers very happy with the results.

  3. Joe is my favorite source for TransTints

    Review by Jeff Roltgen

    Embraced the TransTint Dye products about a decade ago. As a furniture maker, these are invaluable for custom finishes, color matching, and even mixing colored lacquers. So versatile. I keep a full compliment of 14 colors so I'm prepared for almost any finishing challenge that arises. Veneer Supplies is my favorite source, as the service is second to none. Bonus: pricing and shipping are the best deal going. They've earned my trust over many years and many fine products here.

  4. Great Product

    Review by John Mentel

    TransTint is a great product but who really shined here is The item was priced below market pricing and was shipped rapidly and arrived just as quick. Thanks!

  5. Always More than Satisfied

    Review by Brian Crutchfield

    Have bought this product from Joe a number of times, along with a bunch of veneer. Always more than satisfied with the shipping time and quality of product. This dye works wonderfully, and this is the cheapest place online to source it, even including shipping. Thanks!
