General Finishes Empire Red dye stain is a water based stain that penetrates deep into the wood to magnify the grain beautifully. It will provide your project with more depth and color vibrancy than any other stain. This product is excellent for highly figured woods like mahogany, walnut, or maple. Empire Red dye stain can also be used as a toner when mixed with water based topcoats.
