We've used Japan colors

Posted by Charlie Jones on Dec 7, 2004

to color varnishes and lacquers in the shop. Other than that I don't know of any "colored" varnishes. We buy the japan colors from Van Dykes in South Dakota. Many suppliers for woodworking should carry them also.

If you asked nicely at most paint stores you could probably get a dab of their colorants (for OIL based paints) to add to the varnish to darken it.
