Dye Stain Only4/14
I am new to dye stains.
I have worked up a sample that will work for my next job, and to achieve the color, only dye stain and some dye toner is needed.
I have read that dyes have decreased fade-resistance compared to pigments. Do I need to worry about using just dyes to color this maple kitchen? Would it be better to try to achieve the same color using a pigmented wipe stain for some percentage of the color? Or is dye only a common practice?
The kitchen has two medium sized windows. Attached is a photo of the color. I am using Sherwin Williams dye stain concentrates.
Dye only is a common practice. 99.9% of all of our work is dye only. I would not worry about it. It will fade very gradually and evenly. Just like the wood will change color no matter what you put on it. Time always changes the color of woodwork and finishes.
Excellent. I am gad to hear that.
I doubt they will be saving a sample in a black box..
Dye stain and toner only it is.
That said, I really like the sprayed dye vs pigmented wipe stains. Once fine-tuned, it lets the wood show so nicely without blotching.
Some dyes fade faster than others. You want a metalized dye.
