    Artisan® Premium Coloring Dyes magnify the natural beauty of high figured wood without masking it. Made in the USA by a top dye maker with over 100 years experience, Artisan® Premium alcohol-based coloring dyes produce the deepest, most vibrant colors of any dye/stain we have tried. And because they are alcohol based, they evaporate quickly so you can work faster.

    Artisan® Premium Coloring Dyes can be used in a number of ways to create stunning effects on figured wood including layering multiple colors to create added depth and contrast, diluting to achieve a wash effect or mixing to create custom colors. They also work well with light colored woods that have a curly or tiger stripe figure by amplifying the chatoyance of the wood grain.

    Artisan® Premium Coloring Dyes are supplied premixed and ready to use straight from the bottle. Dye can be applied using a paper towel, rag, brush or dauber. Applying with a spray bottle aids in blending colors together. Seal and finish with a lacquer-based top coat such as spray lacquer.

    If you want your turnings to stand out from the rest or just want to try something new, give Artisan® Premium Coloring Dyes a try. You won’t be disappointed.

looks great

Comments On Feb 14, 2020:I have used these dies on bowls made of figured maple and the wood grain really pops. I mix it with alcohol instead of water for faster dry time and less grain raising. Left over mixed dye is stored in a small bottle for later use.

Great color

Comments On Jan 29, 2017:I recently started dying some basic segmented vases and the colors are beautiful, the blue is very strong, tested it out and reduced it slightly with dna. Very pleased with the product and price.

Love these - great coverage and "true" colors

Comments On Jul 19, 2016:I love these dyes - very consistent between batches (I've had to buy both green and yellow a couple times and it's been a 100% match) and the colors are deep and "true".
The red from Artisan is notably more red than the Chestnut Spirit red - Click to see picture. The only color I don't care for is the light blue - it doesn't seem to have the same penetration power as the other colors, and, for me, end up looking very "washed out" unless I do multiple coats.
If they'd put a "squirt spout" of some sort on these bottles they'd be perfect - as it is getting product out without making a mess is no small task. A large pipette or syringe are your best bet - if you have to pour it's gonna be messy - be prepared.

So much fun to work with

Comments On Jun 07, 2015:I purchased black, green, red and blue for dying my kids long boards that we made from baltic birtch plywood. It went on so easy (both by cloth and sponge) and takes absolutely no experience to use. I then put a polyurethane over the top of the boards and the color looks as good 6 months old as it did the day we put it on. Oh and the best part is that its allows the grain of the wood to show through, which adds a lot of character to the boards.

very easy to use

Comments On Sep 08, 2014:First time using dyes and wow I guess I lucked out and got the best. Such a beautiful finish with hardly any effort. Be sure to pick up some masters lacquer spray it adds that finished touch.
