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. Light Oak Dye.

  • Water-soluble concentrated light oak dye in powder form
  • Mixed with water, it is nonflammable, zero-VOC, and low odor
  • Very economical and safe to use
  • Can be topcoated with any finishing material
  • Indefinite shelf life as long as kept in a cool, dry area

    Great for deepening and showing Oak

    Apply with brush, rag or spray. If spraying you must use booth with extraction or outdoors. Apply second coat for evenness of coverage. Buff off after dry with "steel wool" (plastic scrubbers are best). On open pored wood (oak, ash, etc) the pores will not take the colour well. In that case, after applying a sealer (such as shellack), apply a coloured filler (then wipe off hard) and then apply top coats of poly, varnish or whatever. If using oil after the dye, finish off with a coloured wax. If using the light oak stain on oak, try a dark wax rubbed well into pores, and then hard buff off (perhaps with cloth buffing mop in electric drill). This product is so good, I get it from the States, there is nothing like it here in NZ.
