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.

  2. Very Happy

    Review by Mark Townsend

    Beautiful color and good prices too. They have good shipping turn around times and great communication. I have been using these for over five years now.

  3. Great Dyes for Maple

    Review by Jon Rider

    I wanted a honey base for a flintlock rifle in curly maple wood. These dyes are outstanding and soak deep into the wood. This is my new "go to" way of creating color bases and they can be mixed. I used alcohol as a base as to not "raise or whisker" the wood. All in all, a perfect finish.

  4. Best Price

  7. Thanks Joe

    Review by Jim Biddle

    Waited until I received this product to write this review! Received it in 3 days and that included a holiday! Received a personal email, from Joe, when my order was placed. Not one that is formatted for every Tom, Dick & Harry that orders. Nice touch! And the price? Joe beat everyone by as much as $10 dollars per bottle!!! A returning customer? Absolutely.

    Review by Hideo Kamimoto

    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!

  9. Review from Glendale, AZ

    Review by Jeff Dennis

    I was looking for some Transtint dyes for staining my guitar kit projects. I searched the net extensively and found 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 for their excellent service and a great on-line ordering experience.

    I have a furniture restoration business. Each job requires that I customize colors to match any piece that is brought into my shop. With TransTint dies I can easily and quickly achieve the desired match. This product is easy to use and cost effective for me.
