    I much prefer water soluble aniline dyes. Tons of available colors, dries in minutes, and no blotchiness. Just nice, even color.

    Dunno if you'll find it at Home Despot. I get mine from Woodcraft. Look for the brand name "TransTint."

    They don't carry it at Home Depot. If you have a Woodcraft near you, they may stock some colors.
    It comes as a powder that you mix yourself with distilled water.

    I buy most of mine from Woodworker's Supply Woodworking | Woodworking Tools | Woodworking Hardware | Woodworker's Supply

    There are no Woodcraft close to me about 160 mile round trip. I wonder if Rockler would have it there about 35 miles from me...

    Not exactly the same, but similar. Never used TransTint, but they are supposed to be very good.

    I've been using the liquid TransTint for years to dye bamboo to match older bamboo for repairs on bamboo fly rods. The stuff works great and is fairly easy to work with. I thin with DNA. I haven't used it on regular wood like Jerry has, so your mileage may vary from my results.

    As with any finish, I'd try it on a piece of scrap first to check the color.
