I would like to know from those of you using transtints if you know how long the shelf life is of these dyes.
what i am looking to do is to make a bulk order for various other items from Joe Woodworker. He sells transtints at good prices and I have been itching to get my hands on some dyes to play with especially now given its winter .
As i understand it please correct me if i am wrong, these are concentrates. So i can take a bit from the bottle and mix a batch in another bottle for use. Based on my activity and use i am concerned about how long i would take to use a whole bottle of the original dye. Not too worried if the mixed batch needs to be tossed out after a few months but have no idea how long the primary concentrate lasts or even if it has a shelf life. ?
Joes website says unmixed dyes have unlimited shelf life is that true?
Next question would be what color variety to start out with to have a decent range of mixes available. Any recommendations. Definitely going to pick up a color wheel to go with it.
Been itching since meeting Dave at Larrys place years ago to give this dye finishing thing a try.
