The colors that I can get from one application of the Dye stain product are incredibly deep. Shocking how much color I can get into pine with a single application. The client fell in love with the light brown product

Great on black walnut
from Sarasota, Florida
You can wipe it on small areas with a rag or spray it on large areas with a spray gun so you dont get lap marks. Beleave it or not cherry dye makes black walnut look deep rich and luxurious.
Easy to use,added nice depth to cherry cabinets.

About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
This product is wonderful. One coat of this dark brown is plenty. And it's much easier to work with than oil-based stains. My only issue is splattering on surroundings (I'm a little messy) because the stain is so thin. Once you top it with polycrylic, the beautiful rich color comes alive. it's gorgeous!
