I'm new to water-based dye and am confused by General Finishes dye stain. Is it a dye or stain?

Also, is there a noticeable difference between Briwax and TransTINT water-based dye?

Thanks for the help!

In general the difference with a dye is it's is more like a ink which colors the wood. A stain is mixture of pigment suspended in a medium. There are some oil stains that contain dyes also.

I use Mohawk dyes so I'm not familiar with the ones you have listed. I would expect the Transtint, General Finishes and Briwax dyes to be about the same product with the exception that I've heard good reviews with the Transtint dye.
