I think their original purpose was touching up scratches in furniture.  I like them because I stain a lot of little tiny pieces of wood and the marker's are easier than the standard "cloth" application of stain in a can.

Thank you for the tutorial. I want to try it.

Careful, you might get addicted.   Grin I rarely do any printouts without staining them.

How cool! Have you tried any other stain markers that give a lighter finish? I was thinking of trying this with some of my maps, but I'm worried about losing detail/readability

"Golden Oak" is the lightest I've tried.  And yes, I definitely recommend testing it out on several different types of papers/inks prior to using it on anything "treasured."  How the stain interacts with the paper really varies with the weight/type of paper and type of ink used in the print.

I also recommend allowing the test pieces to fully dry before making decisions on the process -- the "wet" page looks wayyy different from the "dry" page.
