RESTORATION OF A PHOTOGRAPH COLORED BY MAGIC MARKERS
Every child thinks that he or she is the next greatest artist. Unfortunately some of their creative experiments take a heavy toll on whatever comes under their magic markers. This oil tinted baby picture that underwent additional coloring at the hand of 5 year old artist was carefully retouched to remove all signs of flaking of the original pigments as well as the magic marker colorization that was generously applied to the hair, eyes and the baby outfit.
The restoration of the eyes presented a particular challenge since it was important to recreate the impression of true baby innocence.
