Semi-Transparent Pigmented Stain - What is it?
The kitchen forum guys directed me here with this question and I hope you can help me. First a disclaimer about not knowing really anything about this other than a manufacturer's description. Medallion cabinetry has a line of finishes that they describe as a "semi-transparent pigmented stain". I am looking at this for a DIY kitchen cabinet job. I am including their press announcement at the bottom of this post. Does anyone know what this kind of stain this is and if would be something DIY? I don't really know if I want this or more of a "aniline water stains.. from aniline dyes" which was one suggestion on the kitchen forum.
Medallion Cabinetry introduced the Coastal Finish Collection
including four new stains at KBIS 2008. Designed to complement
Medallion's existing finishes, these four new semi-transparent
pigmented stains are available in White Sand, Sundance, Seagrass and
The coastal inspired collection is created by using a
semi-transparent pigmented stain which is lightly dry-brushed leaving
a color-washed finish that allows grain and natural characteristics of
the wood to show.
