    Brands? If they are in current production there should be guidance either on their labels or on technical data sheets available from manufacturer.

    Also if there is sufficient extra material available, perform a test.

    I'm no expert at any of this, but can speak to one particular water-based conditioner I use. When I asked the maker, he said you can use any type of stain or dye, and I have. I use it primarily for blotch control on maple and cherry and have found it works great using an oil-based gel stain. Not sure if it applies to all water-based conditioners so as Rob said above, I would check with the manufacturer and definitely do some testing on scraps if possible.
