"Yes you can mix, I always use this tricks if want to use different shades of the same color. But never tried for getting a completely new color. I don't their should be any problem with this."

"Transformation neutral base isn't available yet. Brett - it is true that you can add universal pigments to the stain, as long as they're transoxide pigments, but it's not as controllable as mixing together the already-available…"

Mixing two stains

I've started sanding but can't stop thinking about the upcoming stain application...lol. We have decided on Sashco Transformation stain, but are undecided on color.  We are torn between dark gold (we wish it was a little more brown) and dark brown (wish it was  a little more gold).  I was wondering if I could mix these two stains in order to come up with my own color.  Of course I would measure my mix very carefully. Thanks. Brent    See More

Colorado Log Home Finishing replied to Brent C.'s discussion Sanding disk question
"That is all you need, grinder, backer, and sanding disk. Nothing more. The set up is fast, the work goes quick! You may or may not decide to do some lighter duty sanding after the grinding depending I your desired finish. Tom"

"Ideally you use a sander with a shop vac attachment and eliminate the dust problem all together. We use Festool sanders and their shop vac like this: http://festoolusa.com/power-tools/hepa-dust-extractors/ct-26-hepa-dust-extractor-583492 Tom…"

How%20Borates%20Work-11.pdf

Here you go Brent. It also looks like our chemist saw your post on borates and replied. He's is pretty technical so hopefully it doesn't come off as too dry. Anyway he knows his stuff. Good luck with your project.
