Water Dye

Out of Stock Regular Postage
Concentrated, non toxic, transparent, water dye is especially for use under Shellawax & Shellawax Cream, however it can also be used with confidence under all other types of surface finish. Including: nitrocellulose, shellac, polyurethane, etc.
Because the dyes are concentrated they can be diluted up to 10 times their volume in water and still have extremely strong dying capabilities. It is also possible to obtain very subtle pastel shades by adding full strength dye to 100 or even 1,000 times its volume of water.
The dyes are all made from colourings approved for use in kindergartens and foodstuffs and are therefore NON-TOXIC
making them safe for use on bowls, food utensils, children's toys, babies rattles, etc.
Before you use Water Dye it is advisable to put in some fine preparation work with abrasive paper. On most work it is
best to use the following grit papers. 180, 240, 320 & 400. On pens and small objects that will be under close scrutiny or continually handled etc. use 600, 800 & 1200 grit also.
