Rich black color
This is a tremendous product. I tried other stains but nothing delivers a deep black like this dye stain. I recommend that you use a pre-stain product on the wood first as this will provide for a more even dye stain application and the wood will soak up less dye stain. Once that is completed, apply the dye stain. If you apply an even coat, you will not need to wipe off any excess as you do with traditional stains. This is a dye so it really penetrates well. When you apply the dye stain, it will look light it has a slightly red/purple hue to it when it is wet but it will become completely black when dry. If you add a second coat, you will have a product that is as black as paint but the wood grain will still be visible. This is a truly wonderful product. You will not be disappointed.
