Liberon Van Dyke Crystals are a natural traditional water-based dye used by furniture restorers and cabinet makers for many years. Van Dyke Crystals are made from walnut husks and depending on the ratio used, varying shades and depths of brown can be achieved.
Preparation: Starting with a ratio of 10:1 (water:crystals) dissolve the crystals in warm - hot water before testing on a spare piece of wood. The strength of the colour can be increased or darkened by adding more crystals or lightened by adding more water.
Liberon Van Dyke Crystals are a versatile wood dye, Liberon Water Based Concentrates can be added to give a hint of other colours or they can be added to Liberon Palette Wood Dye to change the standard shades.
Directions: Apply with a good brush or with Liberon Sponge Brushes before wiping off any excess with a clean cloth. Allow to dry for at least 12 hours before lightly rubbing down with fine grade 0000 Wire Wool (use an abrasive nylon pad such as Mirka Mirlon on Hardwoods such as Oak) before refinishing.
Available in: 250g and 500g, plus Mylands 1kg and 25kg
