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. Gorgeous Green

    Review by John Dopita

    Great green dye. Whether it goes on straight, or mixed with yellow, or blue... eye popping! Have used these TT dyes on figured anigre and maple, with great results.
    So far, I'm cutting the dye with isopropyl alcohol, allowing to thoroughly dry then either sealing with a polyester sealer, or with an automotive urethane clear. Working out beautifully. A little goes a long way. Great product!

    Love this stuff. I use it for staining guitars and for resin epoxy dye. This is the best price I have found and I'm so glad it's being offered by a good family owned company. Great products and service here!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
