Topic tags/keywords: colortone liquid stains guitars question finishing water alcohol

Has anyone used these stains?

Looks like they might be pretty good for something other than guitars…

What do you think?

Enjoy…

Those are the same thing as TransTint dyes, with different color names. But if I recall, they have the same SKU numbers, so Stew-Mac is just reselling them. Woodcraft has the TransTint dyes for essentially the same price.

(probably Trans-Tint) Woodcraft has always had good prices on them… cheaper than other places.

I used Trans-Tint Golden Brown on my Book/Magazine Cases … made from Poplar… IMHO, worked great!

They do look really good on finished products, but they don’t do much to seal the wood. You might also consider a semi-transparent stain depending on the project.

Absolutely NOT…
I did NOT know they were the same as Trans-Tint…

I like Trans-Tint though…

I am NOT connected to any of them in ANY way!

Second post linking exterior stains to very old topics…
I didn’t know that… Thanks for the research! LOL
What are the “Very Old Topics”?
