Because of their broad point, it's easy to overstain the margins of a narrow scratch. Whenever I didn't remove the ink as fast as I applied it, the ink sealed itself to the wood and looked obvious. So, I learned to start off by testing a small portion of the scratch with the lightest color I thought would work and wiping the ink off immediately with a dry paper towel. I either went back over it with the same marker if the first pass proved to be too light, or shifted to a darker shade. I found that if I layered the colors (dark over light or light over dark), I could handily match most areas of the scratches. I discovered that I could "remove" or lessen the visual impact of ink that had been overdrawn on the margins of scratches simply by redrawing over the area and quickly wiping. Where Where the ink didn't come off entirely, it had the effect of feathering the color and making it look subtle. Again, this was on sealed, dark wood. You'd never have a hope of doing that to unsealed wood. It might work on sealed blond wood, but you'd need to test and have fast hands.
The wax for me was more trouble than it was worth, but I did manage to jam a lighter color than I needed into some of the deeper scratches (that took work) and then applied the lightest marker over that, gradually used darker markers (wiping as I went) to achieve the desired results. Endless combinations there--too many, frankly.
All-in-all, pretty darn good.
Some Thoughts --
These are really juicy markers - pretty wet compared to conventional markers. There's a lot of stain in each one so you get good mileage out of each. This really offsets the whole issue of price vs not using all the colors. Also, the covers have a really positive snap fit - you have to push hard to click them closed but that should seal these up and keep them moist for a long time. Double check when you are done.
The stain works best on unfinished/exposed wood (like the bottom of a scratch). Even fairly large unfinished areas take the stain uniformly without obvious striping from adjacent marker strokes. However, finished or non-absorbent surfaces are a little more problematic and are where quick smudging/blending with your thumb to feather the stain comes in.
Veneer Edges --
For dressing the edge of finishing veneers on corners, hold the broad side of the marker at a 45 degree angle to the two corner faces and leaning forward a bit and just swipe the length of the edge lightly. There will be minimum contact to either of the two faces adjacent to the corner and very little if any color feathering required.
Removing Excess Stain --
For hiding surface scratches the idea is to color the scratch but not the surrounding finished surface. This is virtually impossible considering the width of the marker tip, but it's pretty easy to remove the excess stain since it turns out the marker stain is alcohol-soluble. I use Zeiss Lens Cleaning Wipes (available on Amazon). They are soaked in alcohol, are lint-free, and have a relatively hard surface that does not easily deform into scratches/nicks when wiping. They only stay moist for a couple of minutes, but that's workable. So - use the marker to make the color repair, then rub the alcohol wipe lightly over the repaired area to remove the excess surface stain but leave the stain in the scratch which is below the surface. Wipe perpendicular to the scratch (cross-ways not long-ways) so the wipe will tend to skip over the stain in the scratch. Don't press down since that will push the wipe into the damaged area and remove the stain that you want to keep. Done.
Since the wipes remove the stain easily, even botched color matches, etc are easy to clean up for another try. The alcohol wipes work great on laminates but use care on unwaxed wood surfaces since alcohol can remove existing stain.
Anyhow - the photos show a quickie 2 minute repair to a badly scratched laminated desktop using the lens wipe technique. This nasty scratch has been there for years and is now virtually invisible. Amazing results!

Matching the color to the best of your ability will give you the best results. I used paper to feel out the colors, and used the closest match. You can also blend the colors pretty effectively.
This kit gives you a lot of options to mix and match. With a little work, you’ll be very happy with your results.
The shades are a good selection for different wood.
