Poster Restoration – Removing graffiti pencil marks

Jackie Robinson detail A client in Michigan sent us this poster with graffiti on the face of Jackie Robinson; not such an uncommon occurrence in this business. Fortunately the moustache was drawn in pencil so not as hard to remove as pen. Don’t be tempted to use a common eraser to remove pencil marks as you will almost always fade the color under the graffiti as well. Instead sprinkle some dry erase powder and use a soft cotton swab to gently remove the pencil mark. For more examples of restoration and linen backing projects please CLICK HERE
