I posted this in the refinishing thread but didn't get a reply so thought I'd make a thread. So can you mix stain/dye in order to create a custom colored finish?

Depends on the kind of stain and dye, usually yes they're are mixable.

If they are the same base, then yes (water or alcohol, etc)

That is sound reasoning. However, be careful because if dyes are anything like paint, blue will quickly overpower red.
Life is about taking risks, as long as the risks aren't too risky.

Yup. Just a note, when mixing dyes, be very careful. Do a drop of color at a time, and be conscious of how thin your making the dye, when adding water (or vice versa), as that changes the color as well.

Can you suggest some good brands of stain/dye? Also I'm not really sure the difference between a stain and a dye.
