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., 8 fl. oz., 16 fl. oz., 32 fl. oz.

"TransTint Dyes are superior...and the colors are gorgeous."
Chris Minick -- Fine Woodworking Magazine

 

 

 TO USE AS A DYE STAIN   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.

NEW!!! Buy all TransTint large sizes (8/16/32 oz.) online on our eBay site here

NOTE: 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.

 TransTint Dye colors shown below on curly maple
NOTE: Due to variances in color monitors, colors shown are approximations only.

#6000 AMBER - (Amber Additive) Add to clear lacquers to give an ambery look. Also used in sunbursts for the center color. Very bright.

#6001 HONEY AMBER - A "must" color, use for duplicating yellowing of old woods and establishing uniformity to different colored boards.

#6002 GOLDEN BROWN - Yellow undertone, good base color for lighter "Mission Finishes" and for maple.

#6003 REDDISH BROWN - A brown with a strong red/orange undertone. Good for cherry finishes. Resembles burnt sienna when diluted.

#6004 MEDIUM BROWN - A basic brown with a slight orange undertone.

#6005 DARK WALNUT - A very dark brown with a hint of red. Great as a dark shader and toner. Similar to van dyke brown.

#6006 DARK MISSION BROWN - A "cool" brown with yellowy undertones. Similar to raw umber.

#6007 CORDOVAN - Red purple undertones.

#6008 BROWN MAHOGANY - A pure brown, without too much orange or red.

#6009 DARK VINTAGE MAPLE - the absolute best color for that vintage maple look. A good color for pine, oaks and lighter woods.

#6010 RED MAHOGANY - for dark red cherry colors. Great for the "Bombay" dark mahogany look when mixed strong (1 oz. dye to 1 pint solvent).

#6020 LEMON YELLOW - Bright and clean. Very vibrant.

#6021 BRIGHT RED - Like a fire engine. A warm red.

#6022 BLUE - A classic blue. Deep and vivid.

#6023 BLACK - A deep rich black. Use for "ebonizing" woods.

#6025 ORANGE - Bright and clean. Not muddy like some oranges.

#6026 PURPLE - A classic purple that's impossible to get if you mix red and blue. Clean, vibrant and a bit on the reddish side.

#6027 BORDEAUX - A scarlet red. Good by itself or mixing with browns to produce deep cherry reds.

#6028 GREEN - A deep, rich emerald-green.
