  • Great new dye product

    Guys

    I found this great wood dye, it is called Teansol and it is available from Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/Wood-Dye-Powd...gateway&sr=8-3
    It is extremely condensed and it only takes 5 grams to make a quart. That makes it $2 per quart. That is 2.5 gallons of wood dye. Here is the product description I stole from Amazon

    Transol powdered solvent dyes are vibrant and strong coloring agents. Each multicolor kit contains 5 different colors of powdered solvent dye: YELLOW, RED, BROWN, BLUE, and BLACK. There are 10 grams of each color per kit, and each color is in its own resealable bag. These powdered dyes can be combined to form customized colors for your unique design. These dyes are suitable for use in solvent based wood stains and other solvent mixtures. Simply dissolve a small amount of dye in your desired solvent, then wipe or brush onto the wood to create a rustic look. Mix into your polyurethane, wood stain, varnish, lacquer, or other solvent-based paint or coating for a brilliant finish. Some of the typical solvents to use are alcohols, MEK, and toluene. These dyes will not mix well in water-based coatings. Do not use for soaps, cosmetics, or other personal care products. Purchasers should determine suitability of these products for their specific use.

    I like to mix each bag with 10oz of alcohol. That way, a tablespoon can be added to to alcohol to make a pint. With the the three primary colors you can mix all the other colors you want. That means you can make team color specific projects. I just wipe on with a rag and quickly wipe off. If it soaks in too fast I first give the project a coat a alcohol then apply the dye..

    So you can get into dyeing for only $20 plus the cost of a gallon of alcohol.

    ps They make half kits for only $15

      Thanks Dave. The brand is called "Transol" I was searching for a Canadian source which happened to be amazon.ca

      I have used Keda dyes as I mixed with water. Works okay but I am going to try with alcohol to see if I get better penetration.

        Using an alcohol based dye should reduce swelling and grain raising compared to water based.

          Thanks for the information Dave. I used Artisan alcohol dyes on the dragon project in the current issue of SSWWC. They go a long way and the colors are intense. My wood turning friends use them and light them to dry them instantly.

            Sorry, Transol. One thing I like is the price. 50 grams for $20. That is the cheapest I have found anywhere.
