ColorFX Liquid Dye Concentrates - 6 Color Wood Tone Kit

We've pre-packaged our recommended starting colors together into a "Wood Tone  Kit" in your choice of a 15ml, 60ml or 250ml size.


This very small collection of dyes can yield a tremendous range of wood tones simply by changing ratios of the dye concentrates.  Choose the 15ml sized kit for small projects or if you're just experimenting with dyes.  The larger 60ml kit contains enough concentrate to stain multiple projects.

  • Can be mixed with water for an economical stain.
  • Can be mixed with alcohol for a fast drying, NGR stain
  • Can be added to many finishes including shellac to create custom finish toners.
  • Compatible with most waterborne finishes and stains including Target Coatings.
  • Colors can be intermixed for unlimited shades
  • Traditional colors match common recipes and formulas
  • Excellent Lightfastness (but not intended for exterior use)
  • Each 15ml (1/2 oz.) bottle of dye concentrate will make approx. 1/2 quart/litre of standard dilution stain
  • Each 60ml (2 oz.) bottle of dye concentrate will make approx. 2 quarts/litre of standard dilution stain
  • Stain intensity is easily increased or decreased by adjusting the ratio of solvent (water or alcohol or a mix of both)
  • 15ml bottles have integrated droppers
  • 60ml bottles include auxilliary droppers
