Rustins Wood Dye
is a quick drying, light fast, versatile, spirit based wood dye. It does not raise the grain, and colours can be intermixed to produce the exact shade required. Rustins Wood Dye is suitable for use indoors and outdoors, but must be finished with a suitable coating.Preparation:
Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free of any previous finishes, wax, oil, grease and dust.Application:
Stir and shake well before use. Apply evenly using a Rustins Foam Brush
or clean Cotton Cloth
and wipe off any excess.
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). Suitable for use under all Rustins Wood Finishes. Rustins Wood Dye can be mixed with Rustins Danish oil
up to 20%, but for best results, apply to bare wood and then finish.
Please note, always test product on a spare or inconspicuous area for compatibility and end result. The colour chart may not be a true representation of the actual colour.Precautions:
The final colour depends on the final coating used, and the original colour of the wood.
