  • Aniline dye stain ?

    Has anyone used water soluble aniline dye stains ? Saw them on woodworker .com.
    1 oz. makes 1-2qrts
    Would these be good for crafts, puzzles etc. ? Would they be child safe? Thanks.

    They do work pretty good however since they are water based they do raise the grain of the wood depending upon species. Yes they are child safe once cured.

      The water base works pretty good but as Mike mentioned it will raise the grain of the wood but they do have the dye that you mix with denatured alcohol and it will not raise the grain. Most finishes are safe once they are fully cured.

      In God we trust, all others must pay cash!

      I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

        I totally agree with Dan (dgman). I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy. Some suppliers...

        Wow, that is a loaded question! You will get a lot of opinions, but the best answer is the ones that work for you. My suggestion is to order or buy several types and sizes and brands, and use what works for you. I would suggest you not buy the generic blades you find in local hardware stores. The top...
