Yielding results comparable to solvent-based stains, these high-quality water-based dye stains are low in harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and clean up easily with soap and water.
They produce an intense, transparent and lightfast hue that penetrates wood deeply. Applied by brushing, spraying or wiping, they are used to produce an even color base, and to tint water-based varnishes to make toners. They contain a small amount of acrylic resin to minimize grain raising and prevent top coats from picking up color.
The stains dry in 2 to 4 hours; apply additional coats if a very dark tint is desired. Colors can be intermixed for custom tints. Can be top-coated with water- or oil-based varnish, shellac, or nitrocellulose lacquer.
Available in one-quart (32fl oz/946ml) cans. Coverage is approximately 150 sq.ft./qt.
Made in USA.
