We are very excited to finally bring you our own, specially developed, Crimson Guitars Stunning Stains Shots.

10ml (dropper) bottles of concentrated Stunning Stain pigments.

This is a concentrate designed to be mixed with a solvent and can be diluted with water to give you a variety of shades.  These pigments can be used to create a wide range of intensities; from bright, shocking color, to light, pastel hues, depending on the concentration you use.

We advise that you always test the color on a piece of scrap wood before applying it to your project.

Please note, these are highly concentrated, we highly recommend that they are diluted (at least a little) before they are applied to wood as they are prone to bleeding with an oil finish.

Please download the safety information & usage guides PDF after purchase.

    Excellent little product, it works really well but my only gripe (which is not with the product) is that there could be more information on dilution shipped with the stain. As a first-time user of the product, I could’ve done with a little help just as a starting point. In the end, I basically played it by ear, mixing a small amount of the stain into a bottle with some water and simply winged it.

    To be honest, this is a five star product, it just needs a few tips or advice on how to use it properly.

    I was pleased to receive my 2 blue shots (Denim and Pthalo) in the post promptly *and* unexpectedly, with droppers enclosed for each.

    I intend to use it for a re-finished of some rather knackered 90’s crackle finish and these colours looked the job.

    Short Story: Both colours look great, and I was able to choose my absolute favourite by trial and error with no fear of running out.

    I could not decide between the 2 blues (see suggestions later), but in the end trying out in situ, I really like the pthalo Blue, and this one was (ahem) “very generously filled”. So it’s nice to have a choice of colours that one can do a real quantity of work with for a very reasonable price.

    To back up the previous (frist) review, I agree we could do with a little more info, and this is after watching all your stains videos…

    Here are some suggestions for areas you could give some guidance on.

    [i] I would be super for the novice to see a picture of an even, deep stain of the colour as it could be done
    [ii] it’s a 10 ml bottle, but I could not find that on the site for the life of me – I guessed it was around that ballpark, but it’s still nice to know the rough area
    [iii] related – how much does 10 ml cover? – I find that it covers a heck of a lot, before, during and after an accidental spill. Seriously, they are very concentrated and it’s worth knowing that only a few dozen drops onto a lint-free cloth will get a decent depth of colour over an entire guitar.
    [iv] how much to dilute for various applications – and with what?
    [v] is there a drying time? – and is the stain ever “permanent”?
    [vi] back to spills – how to clean them up – water when it’s fresh, acetone (nail varnish remover) and household bleach will remove the final signs of colour from the patio or other bleach-proof items

    I would like to give a proper review, but I’m just way too stunned to do so!

    Just kidding, these stain shots are just wonderful. I personally don’t consider it a problem, that there are no instructions given. (tbh. I probably wouldn’t have read them anyway)
    To quote here:”There are no mistakes, just happy little accidents.”. There is no wrong. They are so rich and vibrant, especially when used pure. And you can just lighten them up by using water, simple as it can be.
    You can go harakiri like I did and go straight forward, or (as recommended every time used by the chef himself) take a piece of wood and mess around to get to know the product, and what it needs to achieve what you have in mind.
    Well, and don’t forget to put gloves on, I had to learn this the hard way!xD
    Plus as far as I can say they are super efficient. (depending of course how concentrated you use them)

    Long things short; go for it, you will not be disappointed.
