The Intrinsic Colour Collection is a set of distinctive and atmospheric wood dyes in shades designed by pro UK woodturner Martin Saban-Smith.
These shades penetrate well, enhancing the natural beauty of wood. Bring them to life even more by applying a drying oil before your final finishes.
Enjoy an amazing depth of color on your work by using multiple layers of dye. Create lighter shades by thinning them with water or create your own colors by mixing them together.
All colors available here in 250ml bottles. Spray caps are available separately.
Black: In several coats you can build up a deep, pure black shade, Burnt Orange: A dark orange, on the orangey side of brown, Earth: A warm brown, the colour of drying mud. Sounds bad, but makes a great undercoat or accent colour, Flame: A bright yellow-orange. Add luxurious fire by blending with Burnt Orange and Ruby, Forest Green: Rich green, quite dark, a lot like Jade. A great accent colour and blends well with Straw and Honey, Honey: A glorious yellow. Superb as a bold single colour or a ‘wash’ overcoat, Midnight Blue: Deep blue with hint of purple. Add to quilted figure and catch the purple glint as you turn the piece, Plum: Sumptuous Purple. Looks quite Royal, lending an air of expense to your work, Ruby: Darkish red, Ruby adds a deep and opulent shade which blends superbly with Burnt Orange, Sky Blue: A fairly bright blue – like a clear summer day. Mixes magnificently with Midnight Blue. Formally known as Stone Blue, Pear Green: A rich yellowy-green. Almost grasslike, one of the brightest colours and mixes well with Stone Blue to create a luxury green. Formally known as Straw, White: A pure white dye perfect for white-washing your work or turning the rest of the colours into lighter, more pastel shades. Please note that this dye will not colour your workpiece white, it is not a paint and should be used as a wash.
