    Paper problems

    Hi guys, if this is a bit of a silly question then do forgive me.

    I've been working on a graphite portrait for over a week. Over that time, a couple of small scratches and dents have appeared in the paper that look quite unsightly. I was wondering if there was anything I could do to fill the holes. Perhaps home made paper gloop (I don't know the proper name for it, haha) would fill them? The holes are very small though so I don't know if it would work.

    Cheers.

    About the only thing I would recommend trying is ironing them out. Trythe iron on very low setting through a slightly damp (very slight) thin material like pillowcase or sheet. Good luck!

    What would Caravaggio do?
