I'm no Poster Mountain but I wanted to share a method for removing scuffs on a black print.


This print is pretty trashed right?

I've often wondered if something like that would work. I was always in fear of leaving some sort of residue on the print. Evidently, that's not a problem. Thanks for experimenting and posting your results. Image

Did the same thing with a print I got that had a bit of misprint ink on the border. Used a softer white artist eraser and got about 90% out to the point that you cannot see the ink dots unless you were told.
