Description Extended Information
Homestead's TransTint® Dyes are a solution of metal-complex dyes in a special solvent that offers the finisher many unique options in applying the colors. Sizes available (plastic bottles) - 2 fl. oz.,
Mix with tap or distilled water for an economical, non-flammable stain.

OR mix with alcohol for a fast-drying, non-grain raising stain.  No waiting or straining is necessary because the dye is pre-dissolved.

Suggested mix ratio is 2 oz. dye per 1/2 gallon solvent (increase or decrease ratio to suit need).  Dye solutions can be applied by brush, rag, spray, or sponge.  When using a water-reduced dye, a pre-grain raising is advisable -- apply the dye with an abrasive pad like maroon Mirlon.

TO USE AS A FINISH TONER  One of TransTint Dyes 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.  All 19 dye colors (10 wood tones & 9 accent colors) are intermixable to produce custom shades.
