Product Information:

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 cordovan, 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.

    Comments about Transtint Dyes, Cordovan :

    When you need great penetration, good coverage and complete control over the shade, a good wood dye is essential. I used an alcohol base to avoid grain swelling and obtain fast drying. True to its claims, successive coats darken the shade intuitively and clean-up is amazingly easy - much better than either oil or water based stains. Despite its price, this is an excellent product and the formula goes a long way, so the cost can be justified.
