Wood dyes provide brilliant transparent colors that enhance but do not obscure the wood grain or figuring. Formulas are made with a fast-drying alcohol base utilizing the highest quality, UV-stable dyes available. Adding pure shellac provides more uniform coverage and helps to seal the wood. Use the dyes as single colors or mix together in liquid form to create new colors. Multiple coats of different color dyes can be applied on top of each other for stunning effects. A clear coat with UV protection, such as Chroma Craft clear acrylic, is recommended for coating the finished product.
