Re: ball point pen gone wild

From Wikipedia: "Prior to using rubber, white bread (without crust) was used to erase the mark of graphite pencil and charcoal. It is still sometimes used for that by charcoal artists."

Don't know about ball point ink, but there are a number of internet references to bread being used as art erasers.

Re: ball point pen gone wild

thanks all!

pretty much had to use a lot of patch tool. then a lot of layers to paint back the missing features of the mothers face. then not much joy. the client who did the intial damage as a child didn't appreciate the attempt. i suggested she try the bread trick—in fact i could think of a use for the entire loaf. best...skip

Ball point pen ink is soluble in alcohol, so a bit of gin will do (keep most of it temporarily in a shot glass).

Maybe you would have better luck with colour deconvolution plugin of 4and6site.com. Have a look at http://home.planet.nl/~ber03728/4N6s...lugin/main.htm

Re: ball point pen gone wild

Get yourself some"Bestine" ( rubber cement thinner) and a Qtip try a corner.
This usually works, so does lighter fluid with a Qtip just be VERY careful!!!
Both of these are dangerous but either will usually work.
