The vibrancy of a piece of antique furniture is often determined by its colour. When you’re looking to add a splash of colour to a faded piece of furniture, applying a wood dye might just be the ideal solution. That’s why we have a range of wood stains and wood dye available here at Restoration Materials to bring your antique furniture back to life.
We can provide a range of concentrated water-based wood dyes for all your colour needs. Liberon’s concentrated water-based dye is excellent for mixing with water or acrylic paints to dye your wood to the colour you would like in a range of primary colours, black and white.
For more serious colour, we can also provide spirit-based wood stains such as Morrell’s Light Fast Spirit Stain. As the name suggests, they are light fast, so will not fade when exposed to the light. Suitable for a range of application methods including rag, brush, spray and dip, these fast-drying stains come in an enormous range of colours, which can be mixed to create the exact shade you need.
If you would prefer to create your wood dyes yourself, we offer high quality crystals and aniline powders ready to mix with both water and methylated spirits. While these may not promise light fastness, they are ideal for antique restoration finishes. We can also provide pigments suitable for mixing with shellac polishes.
If you have any questions about any of our wood dyes or stains, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via our contact page. We’d be delighted to answer all questions you may have.
