For a lighter shade, the dye may be diluted with White Spirit - 2 parts Dye to 1 part White Spirit, for a darker shade, apply two coats (always test in an inconspicuous area first).
Precautions: The final colour depends on the final coating used, and the original colour of the wood.
Please also see our Wood Stains and Dyes product pages for alternative wood dyes and our Rustins product section for the full range of Rustins products stocked.
If you want to use wax over a spirit based dye, apply one coat of Danish Oil before waxing. Water-based Wood Dyes are available in the same colour range as the spirit-based dyes, except for Rimu.
For a really intense colour, try using the water-based dyes first, then (once dry) apply a spirit-based dye over the top.
Water-based dyes can be thinned with water (of course!), and take a little longer to dry completely – around 30-40 minutes. As with the spirit-based dyes, the water-based dyes are not a finish in themselves, and must be sealed with Danish or Teak Oil.
Note: These are pictures of actual samples – Briwax spirit-based dye was applied to bare timber by wiping with a cloth. WOOD DYE - For use on bare wood prior to finishing with any of Rustin’s wood finishes.
Different shades may be intermixed to make an infinite variety of natural wood shades.
