Developed by renowned furniture restorer and finisher Jeff Jewitt, these water soluble 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. Extra Dark Walnut Dye.

    Do NOT top with Polycrylic!

    I knew that water-based Polycrylic did not play nice with the red pigments in oil-based stains (specifically, as Minwax warns, their Mahogany oil stain). I (wrongfully) assumed that since water-based stains were already water-based, this would be compatible with water-based Polycrylic. BZZZZZ! Wrong!! Polycrylic removes the warm, red tone out of X Dark Walnut in minutes, leaving a neutral-brown, chestnut color. Apparently there is enough sensitive, red pigment in this color that it reacts poorly to Polycrylic! Hard lesson learned here. You have been warned.

    Excellent results on maple

    Maple can be difficult to color. TransFast Extra Dark Walnut produced a rich dark hue. It was easy to dissolve in water at room temperature. Color intensity was simple to adust. I got a perfect match to a commercially finished companion piece. I wish I'd discovered TransFast dyes sooner.
