Color Touch-up on Cloth Book Spine

Color Touch-up on Cloth Book Spine

This is just one way to do color touch-up on book-cloth  spines. Another way could be to use acrylic paints which is not advised for beginners. Both methods have their benefits. Color touch-up should be seen as a last resort! It is very easy for it to go wrong and it can ruin your book.

  • Type of Book: Common Case-bound Books¬†
  • Issue: The color of the spine is “off” due to staining or dirt.
  • Treatment: Scrape to even out the color then re-color as necessary with colored pencils.
