What is the best way to mix a Saman Stain color?

Posted by DTEPStore on 10/23/2014 to Saman Stain

Use a Graduated Syringe and Mixing Container such as (Saman Mixing & Staining Kit #60-003). Follow stated formulas precisely or create your own. If you create your own formula don’t forget to record it! After all colors are combined shake by hand to mix thoroughly. Always sample your color on a test piece of wood to make sure the proper color has been achieved. If necessary add several drops to adjust the color to your exact preference. Mixing Example: For color (Bordeaux) the formula is (6PRT 100 & 1PRT 108). Always start by using the lower part value then add to it. In this example you would first put 1PRT Color 108 into the mixing bottle. 1PRT could be any amount, 1/4 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1 ounce, 5 ounces etc… Next you would add 6PRT Color 100 to the mixing bottle. In this example 6PRT 100 represents 6 times the amount of Color 108 added earlier. So if you put 1/4 ounce Color 108 into the mixing bottle already you would now add 1-1/2 ounces Color 100 to it. (That’s 1/4 ounce multiplied by 6).
