Using Our Dyes
Like with any wood finishing product, it’s essential to use the proper personal protective equipment, such as gloves, safety glasses, and anything else necessary to protect yourself. When mixing our wood dyes with hot water, make sure the mixture is cool enough to handle before using it 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 liquid 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 that dried wood dye can look dull; this is normal and will change when the top coat sealer is applied.
Our dyes will last for several years unmixed as long as they are stored in a cool, dry place that’s protected from air and intense light. Once they’re mixed, they’ll last anywhere from days to several months as long as they’re tightly covered and are stored away from intense light. However, the colored stain may become weaker over time. For longer storage of the blue dye powder after mixing, it’s best to mix it with isopropyl alcohol.
The liquid dyes will also last for quite a long time as long as they’re tightly covered, are stored away from intense light, and away from sources of heat or open flame. Please note that liquid dyes can be flammable, especially when mixed with solvents. Using fresh dye stain solutions will provide the best results.
