Set of 12 15ml Intrinsic Colours

Product Description

A set of 12 shades of atmospheric colour, 9 of which are shades unique to this set of colours. 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. 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 come in their own boxes with wipe-clean labels so the colour name can always be visible, a printed guide to Martin’s colouring technique, going over the important points of how to apply the Intrinsic Colour range. There is also a handy guide for colourblind woodturners and woodworkers wishing to use the colours to their work. 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.To increase the lifetime of the colours, keep finished pieces out of direct sunlight and consider using a UV filtered finishing oil underneath the final finish as an additional layer of protection.
