    spot repair on print?

    I have a print I made last night and it has a few tiny dust spots on it that I want to repair. Do I have to buy a spotting kit or are there pens etc. I may already have that will work fine?

    Purchase a set of sable hair brushes 0000 to 0 for spotting. Don't buy the hobby grade stuff like used to be sold at the camera stores.

    Spot tone can be use for more than just fixing spots. It can also be use as a burn tool in the bottle to smaller print areas and specular highlights and so forth.

    It is usually more difficult to spot RC coated papers compared to fiber based paper.

    Absolutely agree with everything Don had to say


    This is my spotting kit (there are a few more bottles of spotone not shown)
    Buy the best brushes you can get at a good art supply store and check them with a loupe before you buy them. Add a bit of practice and you are good to go.
