Had some faux beams done in the kitchen , the guys doing it left me some extra dye in case I wanted to darken it, it’s a brown granule, which I was told to mix with hot water. Anybody know what the brand might be?

Some of the brown dyes contain potassium permanganate, going purple in water but leaving a brown stain.

I very much prefer the spirit-based dyes. I used to get Wilko own brand (made for them by one if the UK factories) but Blackfriars and Rustins seem the same. Colron sell a "refined" water based one now that is nowhere near as good. I apply by brush for speed.

You can mix them in a jar for colour variation, which looks more natural. They are just combinations of brown, red, yellow and black colours.
