Default Shellac tinting

I've read about tinting shellac with analine dyes (transtint). Has
anyone ever tried to tint shellac with an oil stain?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Only if you find one soluble in alcohol. AFAIK, none are.

Interesting timing. I tinted shellac with transtint for the first time a
few hours ago. Worked fine.

Oil stain sounds like a bad idea, but is easy enough to wipe up a batch and
try it.

Sure there are. The alcohol dyes are old school and have been around
forever.

And the manufacturer's homepage: http://www.wdlockwood.com/main.html

Be aware that the alcohol dyes aren't as light-fast as the water
soluble dyes. It's a good idea to use a finish that has UV protection
so you won't have fading even if it is indoors.

I have to thank you, if I wasn't searching for Lockwood to answer the
question, I wouldn't have found this place: http://www.toolsforworkingwood.com
It's not that far from me, so I'll have to make a visit.

Transtint dyes are designed to be dissolved in water or alcohol.

Oil and alcohol don't readily mix.

You can tint oil finish with artists' oils, then shellac
over top.

Mixol will combine with most any finish, if that is of interest.

Are they sold through retailers or just direct? I would like a bottle but
their freight is punitive.
