Tang,

I would be interested in seeing images of the poster after you have used the pencils.

Also if anyone knows of a good set of watercolor pencils, I would appreciate this information.
I have a number of inexpensive posters that have missing pieces and I need to patch and color them myself.
Regards

Ian

Nice pic Steve!  Fold line issues, or more touch ups than that?

Hi Vick, some missing bits(!):





The orange bits on the floor near my feet are left over scraps of other posters to cover holes in the Tarzan poster. That's where buying some $1 posters comes in handy!

Thanks Tob  thumbsup.gif 

I hung it on the wall at a level close to the floor so easiest to work on as lying it on the floor would have been too hard for this size

Very nice job on your Tarzan 6 sheet, Steve!  I sure like seeing it up on the wall, too.  Okie

Not impressed by Passion Graphiques restoration , i thought the fakes would be properly spray painted over but i guess i cant expect better for 200 euros   :'(

Hes good at backing but thats about it
