The article doesn’t mention scuffing before staining. Also, as it mentions being able to wipe the stain clean and starting over, that suggests a smooth surface since, if you were to scuff it, stain would remain in the scratches.

If it were me, I’d stick with dyes and lacquer. Sher-Wood CAB acrylic is easy to spray and is crystal clear, so whatever you put under it shows through. It’s also available tinted in any of their colors in the case where you want a solid color.

You could still accent those beautiful features in your frame with a glaze. Wipe it on and wipe off the flat areas, leaving the color to bring out the 3D effect.
