Advice on different dyes/tints
« on: October 20, 2006, 10:06:39 AM »
I have used alkaline dyes in the past but would like to experiment with other products that are now on the market.

Open suggestions are welcome, but my specific questions are:
   
    Do you know the pros/cons of either Mixol or TransTint?

     Do you have any personal experience with either?

Thanks

Ken

Trans tint dyes, manufactured by Jeff Jewitt are analine dyes mixed in a proprietary solvent that allow them to be used in either solvent or waterbased finishes. They are great dyes and have replaced powdered dyes in my shop. I believe that they are based on the water dyes so that they are very light fast. If you have questions about them,  go to www.homesteadfinishing.com and ask Jeff.

I don't have any experience with Mixol.
