tinting a clear finish

I would like to paint a bench with oil based black paint, sand some areas off, then apply a clear finish that has some brown or umber tint to dull the black down and tint the sanded areas. What kind of clear finish can be tinted and still remain clear?

Both polyurathane and varnish can be tinted. The result is not a totally clear finish but a finish that has a tint to it although the original substrate can be seen through it.
