What is "Toner" - Definition & Explanation

A finish containing a colorant (dye, pigment, or both) usually sprayed on to correct or add color to wood furniture or parts. Terminology varies but most people call it a toner when applied over large areas and a shader when applied to selective areas for darkening or highlighting. Compare to: Glaze. In less expensive furniture, all the color is in the finish and when chipped off, reveals uncolored wood.
