This is the magic weapon of coloring wood and other materials. I vastly prefer it mixed with alcohol rather than water. It is a bit spendy, but a tiny bit goes a very long way. You can under-dye a stain with it to get colors of antique furniture just right. Keep a wet leading edge to avoid streaks. Use a little rag, rather than a brush to get perfect results. The color is so much deeper and lush than other types of coloring.
Dang, wish I'd know to do this a long time ago! The Family Handyman DIY Tip of the Day: Stain Sprayer. Here’s an easier way to stain or seal chairs, lattice or anything with numerous tight recesses. Pour the stain into a clean, empty spray bottle. Spray the stain onto the project and wipe up the excess with a brush or rag. The sprayer will squirt stain into all those tight, hard-to-reach cracks and joints. - Valrie Schuster
