ColorTone Liquid Stains

I'm living in Sweden and will be going to Montreal next week.
Is there any shop in Montreal that would sell ColorTone Liquid Stains by Stew Mac??

Stew-Mac's ColorTone dyes are repackaged TransTint dyes. Stew-Mac changes the color names, but not the colors, I believe.

I have no idea where to find TransTint dyes in Montreal, but it's available in woodworking stores here in the US (Rockler, Woodcraft, etc.).

Avoid the Trans Taint. I hear they don't take wood well.

Transtint is great to work with and Transfast is excellent too. Check out the thread in Custom Shop "DC face lift". Combo of both products.

I went to school in Montreal. I don't know of anywhere that would have them. I ordered mine online in Canada from here Dyes & Pigments not sure if it's the same product.

I have no idea where this rumor came from. I have used both color tone and TransTint for over 12 years. It is one of the best water, shellac and solvent soliable stains out there.

I'm pretty sure that was a joke.

I'm pretty sure that shoulda been purple. Here, allow me.
