Using Our Dyes

Like with any wood finishes type product, please use the proper personal protective equipment, such as gloves, safety glasses, and any other equipment necessary to protect yourself. If mixing our wood dyes with hot water, make sure the mixture is cool enough to handle before using to prevent burns. For a darker color tone, add more dye or use smaller amounts of water. For a lighter color tone, use less wood dye or add greater amounts of water. Apply the stain by using a sponge, brush, spray gun, or a lint-free cloth. Test your color on a scrap piece of the same type of wood, or in a spot that will not be noticed. Evaluate the color after the dye has dried. Note: Dried wood dye can look dull, this is normal and will change when top coat sealer is applied.


Our dyes will last for several years unmixed, as long as they are stored in a cool, dry place, protected from air and intense light. Once they are mixed, they will last days to several months as long as they are tightly covered, and are stored away from intense light. However, the color may become weaker over time. For longer storage of the blue dye powder after mixing, it is best to mix with isopropyl alcohol. The liquid dyes will also last for quite a long time as long as they are tightly covered, are stored away from intense light, and away from sources of heat or open flame. Please note the liquid dyes can be flammable, especially when mixed with solvents. Using fresh dye stain solutions will also provide best results.
