Product Description

What are They? Being water based, they are non-flammable, environmentally friendly and afford you a longer working time than alcohol based stains and dyes. They sink deeply into the wood and preserve the appearance of the figure in the wood, releasing the hidden subtleties and enhancing chatoyance. Apply more than one coat of dye to build up sumptuous depth of colour and atmosphere, and add a black or earth undercoat for an even more dramatic effect. The video guide goes into depth about using the colours in a variety of techniques.

For the adventurous colourist, Intrinsic Colours can be mixed together to create even more shades or thinned with water for a lighter shade.

The sets are a brilliant and affordable way for woodturners and woodworkers  to try the dyes out before taking the plunge with individual colours or the complete boxed set.

Lightfast? No colour is 100% lightfast. They will all fade in time. The pigment manufacturer has given me assurance that they are light fast for at least as long as a normal household paint. To increase the lightfastness, use the included Danish Oil which has an added UV filter to ensure the longest possible fade-free lifetime.

Intrinsic Colour Guide:

Black: In several coats you can build up a deep, pure black shade.Burnt Orange: A dark orange, on the orangey side of brown.Earth: A warm brown, the colour of drying mud. Sounds bad, but makes a great undercoat or accent colour.Flame: A bright yellow-orange. Add luxurious fire by blending with Burnt Orange and Ruby.Forest Green: Rich green, quite dark, a lot like Jade. A great accent colour and blends well with Straw and Honey.Honey: A glorious yellow. Superb as a bold single colour or a ‘wash’ overcoat.Midnight Blue: Deep blue with hint of purple. Add to quilted figure and catch the purple glint as you turn the piece.Plum: Sumptuous Purple. Looks quite Royal, lending an air of expense to your work.Ruby: Darkish red, Ruby adds a deep and opulent shade which blends superbly with Burnt OrangeStone Blue: A fairly bright blue. Mixes magnificently with Midnight Blue.Straw: A rich yellowy-green. Almost grasslike, one of the brightest colours and mixes well with Stone Blue to create a luxury green.
