This water-based stain is amazing! You won't believe the rich colors and how easy it is to apply with uniform results. It's a blend of natural and synthetic waxes, dye-stuffs and binders with high penetration and dyeing power. This stain will not bleed or rub off. Colors can be mixed to form different hues. It can also be thinned with water to reduce intensity. Do not use on suede; for veg-tan leather use only.
