Nikolas Dye Colors are concentrated liquid dyes that can be
blended with clear coatings. The result is a transparent colored
coating, which fully reveals the surface finish of the base metal.
These are the same dyes that Nikolas uses to produce our toner
coatings. These products are used to simulate antique metal oxide
finishes; color brass substrates to any shade of gold or bronze;
or to change white metals like aluminum or pewter to brass, bronze
or any darker colored metal. Our dyes may also be used to tint
glass and plastics to a variety of colors.
The colors demonstrated here are shown on two different metal
substrates, brass or silver so you can see how the base metal
affects the final color. These samples were produced by adding
four liquid ounces of dye into 1 gal of lacquer then thinned 50/50
to apply the tube. Virtually any color can be produced. See our
toner color section for more examples.
