Cabinetmakers Walnut Crystal Wood dye is a trade secret, but it's one of the most widely used wood stains by the Antiques trade and by high class reproduction furniture makers, commonly used to colour Oak, Mahogany and Walnut, but it is equally suitable for use on Pine and other softwoods. This dye is used to make the traditional wood stain colours used on Victorian & Edwardian period furniture, doors, architectural features and reproduction furniture. These Cabinetmakers Walnut Crystals are very light fast so they are also a good choice to stain your front door. In recent years the real benefits of Walnut Crystal wood dye has been re discovered, the dye is apart from being traditional, is totally natural, non toxic, its recycled (made from Walnut husks) and because you mix it with water, there are no toxic solvents or fumes to worry about, which is great especially if you have children around, and it makes a very good light fast, cost effective wood dye! Walnut Crystals are very easy to use and can produce a wood dye colour that can range from a very light to dark brown, to almost Black (Jacobean / Tudor style) the colour shade is altered by simply changing the amount of Walnut Crystals added to the water, about 3 full teaspoons of Cabinetmakers Walnut Crystals mixed with half a cup of warm water makes a nice brown wood dye. The dye can also be made with cold water, simply put the crystals in a jar of water and leave it overnight, give the mixture the occasional stir or shake and its ready to use. The dye can be applied with either a brush, sponge, cloth or with a spray gun. Once applied, the dye will be touch dry in about 40 minutes, but I would recommend that it allowed to dry for a minimum of 4 hours (ideally 12 hours) before final finishing / wax polishing. Many of our regular customers are Antique dealers or professional Antique restorers and they normally make up a batch stock of concentrated dye to produce a very dark almost black dye and commonly use it on Victorian, Edwardian and Jacobean period furniture. The concentrated dye stock is then used neat, strengthened or diluted as required. It’s a good idea to note the quantity of Walnut Crystals used and the amount of water added so that you can replicate the exact colour again without trial and error. The dye has good penetration and this penetration can be improved (if required) by adding by a dash of ammonia to the dye (the ammonia breaks down the surface tension and improves penetration depth) The colour can be further adjusted to make / match many wood colours like Antique oak or English oak etc by adding " Bolgers Water Wood dye Powder " it comes in yellow, orange, red, black, brown, Raspberry, blue and green. For example Yellow dye powder is added to make an Antique oak / Antique Pine colour, the green is added to make English oak, whilst Red and Blue to both added to make Plum Mahogany. Dye Coverage: This will depend on the absorbency of the wood and density of the dye colour required, but as a rough guide 25 grams of Walnut Crystals will make approx 250ml of dye and this will cover an area between 2 - 4 square metres (approx). Quick trade repair tip: Use these Cabinetmaker’s Walnut Crystals to repair holes and cracks in furniture by mixing the crystals with an epoxy resin (Araldite) Epoxy resin is not included in this sale! How to apply wood dye Put some wood dye in a clean glass jar, ceramic dish or takeaway foil container. Whilst you can apply dyes with brushes or foam pads, I find the best method is to use lint-free, clean cotton rags, fold the rag into a pad and dip the pad into the dye and wring out any excess dye. A lint- free cotton rag pad gives a better more even finish and does not leave brush marks, is more controllable, less messy and is a faster method than brushing. It’s a good idea to wear gloves to avoid staining your hands. We have cotton rags listed in our Ebay Shop.
