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 purple, 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, Purple :

    At first you would think transtint is fairly expensive until you use it and realize a couple drops goes along way in whatever your mixing. Now that I have used transtint I probably stop using Analine powder.

    Comments about Transtint Dyes, Purple :

    Purple? That was my thought when a customer asked me to make a purple turkey call for his young daughter. Although I haven't used the purple dye yet, I have used the Trans-Tint dyes in green, amber and black. Mix as the directions state and try them on a scrap piece before using on your project. A word of caution, they will highlight any scratches in your wood. They also absorb deeper and faster into end grain than they do in face grain. If you are working with small pieces, I suggest dipping or submersing your project into the dye. The color consistency is much better if this is possible with your project.
