I think other than being messy it is a great product for what I used it for. Used it for a guitar body top, Once it dries good, gonna Tongue oil over the dye to gloss it up !! Over all.... GREAT PRODUCT !!
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.
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.
look great, especially on pine!
