Developed by renowned furniture restorer and finisher Jeff Jewitt, these TransFast water-soluble powder dyes outperform any we have tried. Because the dyes contain no fillers or extenders, each 1 oz. bottle makes a half gallon or more of stain, nearly twice as much as most other dyes! Packaged in resealable bottles, you can use only the amount of dye necessary for the project at hand and not have to worry about the remaining powder leaking out of a paper envelope or absorbing moisture like other powdered dyes. Perfect for new work, repairs, or restoration, these deep penetrating colors can be combined to create virtually any shade without hiding the natural features of the wood. Stained surfaces can be coated with almost any type of finish to bring out the color you’ve applied. These easy to use dyes come with the best mixing and application instructions we have seen. Do not store liquid dyes in metal containers. Dark Mission Brown Dye.

    Did exactly what I needed it to.

    I used this to darken the lighter parts of oak veneer plywood that the expresso oil based stain couldn't, to match that almost opaque finish that is very popular right now. Be sure to raise the grain with water first and when dry sand to minimise the grain raising effects of all water based stains. After 2 dye coats apply the stain and finish.

    Great Base Color

    Easy to work with since it is water based. I added a little Red acrylic paint to give it a more maroonish color. This dye provided a nice base coat for my future shellac and glaze top coats. It helps to raise the grain first by watering down the wood (1/4 sawn oak), letting it dry and then sanding it smooth. I finished with 600 grit and then applied the dye.
