This was a labor of love and made completely sustainably on our wood stove that heats our home in Upstate New York. This stain is the safest and most sustainable way to write, dye and make your wood stains. It is simply spring water from our farm and husked black walnuts. Then the walnut themselves are died and cracked open and fed to our chickens for extra protein for the winter.
The black walnut tree is getting harder and harder to find as they are sought after for there lumber and rarely sustainably harvested or replanted.
In the pictures, I can show you a recycled tablecloth from our thrift store I Tye Dyed with the black walnut stain to give it new life again.
Also, a piece of birch wood I did a single coat on to she the wood stain. Multiple coats make the stain darker and darker.
Always wear gloves when handling this as it will stain your hands. Naturally but they will be discolored for days :)
This ships for free in the US. International buyers can contact me for shipping prices.
You get a pint of stain which is about 16 oz. ( it goes a long way) and a reusable jar. If you would like to message me and I can include some horse hair so you can make your own paint brushes to use with the stain.
