Developed by renowned restorer and finisher Jeff Jewitt, the TransTint line of dyes is more versatile than any weâ€TMve 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 â€œshader,â€ 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.
