Developed by renowned restorer and finisher Jeff Jewitt, the TransTint line of dyes is more versatile than any we ve ever seen! TransTint dyes, like this dark walnut, can be mixed with water for an economical, nonflammable stain or with alcohol for a fast drying, non-grain raising stain. For use as a toner or "shader," dyes can be added directly to water-based finishes and solvents to create a perfect match for touch-ups or a unique, customized finish. A 2 oz. bottle yields about 2 quarts of dye-stain. Can even be added to: shellac, catalyzed lacquer and varnish, water-based lacquer and polyurethane finishes. Not for exterior use.
