A customer had asked me to repaint some parts of this canvas mainly because some of the paints has chipped off. One of the challenges of doing repair work like this is trying to get the original colour in place again. I presumed you just need to use your colour sense...your best guessed and creativity in blending the new colour with old one. In some places I need to use the texture paste to smooth up the surface.

Another refurbishing project that I had done is to repaint an old wooden first aid box. I decided to paint a layer of black gesso to get rid of the old design and then sandpaper it. Using dark background colour does help.
