Dyes do not hold up well exterior , noted exception to Metal Complex dyes ( man made pigments )
The only one i know of that say their dyes can be used exterior is WD Lockwood
look under water base dyes and find the Metal complex color chart , they are powder and you simply mix with water .
As for a finish, after some pretty drastic finish failure using a spar varnish , i totally agree , I dont want a film finish .
One finish I tested over a 3 year period was called One Time , its an oil finish,
It can be easily recoated and maintained ….

Just my .02
