I have a 60 gallon bucket of fresh picked walnuts and was wondering if someone has the formula for making walnut stain to use on rifle stocks.  Would appreciate any help.  Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!

I'll see if I can find some recipes and get back to you. I surely would be interested in drying some for sure.

My daughter had a school project on natural dyes. Black walnut hulls turn everything (including your fingers) a very dark brown/black. The dyes that simulate the color of wood taken from a walnut tree are most likely artificial. Most of the "walnut" rifle stocks, paneling, etc. are imported from Europe or use trees that come from Europe or the Middle East originally like 'English" or 'Circassian' walnut.

Using alcohol to extract the colors worked better for my daughter than using water especially on goldenrod for yellow and sumac berries for pink-red. The walnut hulls stained regardless of what was used as a solvent.

It also works great as trap dye.
