Hopefully that works for you. If it doesn’t, you have a number of options. Water based dyes can be diluted to get just the tint you’re looking for. If you want a solvent based spray, Mohawk makes dye based transparent toners in a spray can that comes in about 30 colors. You could top either of those off with their dead flat pre-cat lacquer in aerosol as well. I think you’re looking at about a 5 to 10 sheen on that. I’ve used it and it is definitely flat.

If you want product links for any of that, let me know.
