Dye stains penetrate deep into the wood to enhance the wood grain and produce vibrant colors. Dye Stains come ready to use after stirring and are available in 12 colors in pints and gallons. These Dye Stains can be by themselves, mixed with General Finishes pigmented stains to create custom colors, or as a toner when mixed with water based topcoats and are easy to clean up with soap and water. They can be applied with a brush or sprayer. Water based (High Performance Top Coat), shellac, lacquer and solvent based top coats can be used on top of dye stains. Drying time is 2 – 4 hours at 70% humidity. Coverage is 75 sq. ft. per pint.
