Tinting and Dying Tru-Oil?

Thank you so much for this information! I do have a question though;

Can you safely tint or dye Tru Oil? I’ve seen folks on YouTube add artist grade oil paint to Tru Oil to give it a slight color.

It looks fine but I wonder if it changes the application, drying, waiting process?

Have you done this yourself or used a different method for tinting Tru Oil?

Thank you Sean. I have a video here: Tinting Oil Finishes – that explains the entire process.

This should cover everything, and if you have any questions please let me know and I will be glad to help.

Happy building.
