I have a wood(White Pine)project that I want put mineral oil on and was wondering if I could add a small amount of wood stain to the oil before I applied it

  • You'd want to use a purpose-made dye. Results would be unpredictable at best when adding full wood stain. – isherwood Oct 6 '17 at 15:06
  • I would want to use an oil with pigment in the oil there are lots of brands and colors on the market colors range from black to white and everything in between, mixing 2 different products may not provide the results you want and could end up blotching or spotting like when oil and water are mixed. – Ed Beal Oct 6 '17 at 16:01

    Best to stain it before applying the mineral oil. If you mix stain in with the oil it would not penetrate and would be constantly transferring stain to whatever it touched. – Jim Stewart Oct 6 '17 at 16:01
