Manns Classic Wood Dye is manufactured from the finest ingredients and quality pigments which in turn enhances the overall grain structure of the wood. Lesser quality wood dyes can produce a washed out or patchy effect.

Ensure that wooden surfaces to be dyed are clean, dry and free from surface dirt, debris and other surface contaminates. New, bare wood or wood that has been freshly sanded or stripped can be wiped down with White Spirit which is excellent for degreasing the wood.

  1. Sand along the wood grain to no lower than a 150 grit ensuring a consistent finish. Failure to do so will result in a patchy appearance.
  2. Wipe down the surface with a slightly damp cloth or vacuum to remove all traces of sanding dust
  3. Mask off and protect any surfaces and areas not to be dyed

Always do a test area before starting any project to test product suitability, colour and final finish. The final colour finish will only be seen when overcoated with a wood oil or varnish. Therefore the test area will need to be finished with a top coat to assess the final colour finish.

Manns Classic Wood Dyes are very easy to apply and have a good open time which helps to keep a wet edge, allowing time for tidying up runs and puddles.

  1. Mix the wood dye thouroughly before and periodically during use.
  2. Apply thinly in the direction of the wood grain and wipe off any excess dye with a clean lint free cloth
  3. Apply using a synthetic bristle brush, sponge, foam applicator or spray gun
  4. A foam sponge is highly recommended when working on large flat pieces as any heavily dyed areas can be soaked up by the sponge as you work. Similarly by applying a little more pressure, more of the wood dye can be released to save time returning to the container for more
  5. De-nib (lightly sand) using a fine finishing pad before applying the top coat or a 2nd coat of dye if desired. Take care to remove all traces of sanding dust with a vacuum cleaner before sealing with a suitable top coat.

Manns Classic Wood Dye must be sealed with a top coat system such as a Wood Varnish, Wood Oil or a Wood Wax. If using a water-based top coat, apply 1st coat thinly, passing over surface with few strokes to avoid any lifting of the dye. Apply 2nd coat as normal (de-nib between coats).

I couldn't have chosen a better product for the finish I wanted by Kevin Holland

This product transformed a dark oak stained fireplace into a nearly identical colour as the overmantle. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Easy to brush on and wipe to give the required finish. Brilliant product.

Does the trick nicely by G Byles

I used it to stain a musical instrument. It works well, however it is important to do a test piece first. It worked for me by starting with a very weak mix and building up coat by coat. Also the order was handled very efficiently - 5* for that :) I will be buying more colours soon, enough said.

Works fine by G Byles

I used it to stain a musical instrument. It works well, however it is important to do a test piece first. It worked for me by starting with a very weak mix and building up coat by coat. I used the brown along with the black to get graduated shading. Also the order was handled very efficiently - 5* for that :) I will be buying more colours soon, enough said.
