We refer to this as the "Magic Box". Our stains are made by combining powered dyes with shellac in order to make the perfect match to repair or enhance your furniture. After the stain is applied, we match the reflection with gloss, satin or flat aerosol lacquers. This method is permanent and will never fade as magic markers will.
