W.D. Lockwood., Inc. has offered superior quality dyes for wood since 1895. Our concentrated mixing colors can be applied to any type of wood. Our cost effective dry powder formula dissolves quickly into hot water, 1 Lb. yields 4 - 8 Gallons of liquid stain. Lockwood wood stain powders are applied by brushing, sponging, or spraying, and can be finished with various types of lacquer, shellac, varnish, or oil based coatings. Available in water, alcohol, or oil soluble powder, our non-hazardous dyes for wood impart a deep, transparent color to your wood.

Metal Complex Dyes are Here!

Lockwood is proud to announce our Metal Complex line, consisting of 14 colors with more on the way. Metal Complex colors have the highest lightfastness (resistance to fading) of all dyes, and are recommeded in areas where strong, direct sunlight is expected. For best performance under strong UV conditions, a marine varnish with strong UV inhibitors is still highly recommended. Prices & Colorcharts are now on our site under 'Products.' See the colorchart, under Water Soluble Colors, to view samples on Maple.

Note - with a few exceptions (noted on colorchart) Metal Complex Dyes are soluble in both Water & Alcohol
