    E6858577-DD28-4E11-A13C-1C48439AF609.jpeg I was putting down paint on Yupo using Comart and got too heavy, so it beaded up. Tried a fix and of course made it worse. Is there a technique for fixing without erasing everything?

    May not be the best answer, but i would use white with a very small touch of yellow/orange.probably just yellow.slowly blend over it until you cant see the booboo no more. Then try to go bsck over with your colour.
    Hope this helps

    Yes, the white would be a good approach... Yupo is tricky to erase and go again...

    If you dont add a touvch of yellow you may get blue shift. Being green i would say if you just add a touch of yellow to your white (very very small amount)it will help stop the blue shift. When i bring back skin colours i add a tiny bit of yellow and red (orange)

    This is a hard one to fix, because the base colors that are already down are transparent. Any repair to the area is going to wind up being opaque. I too think white will be your best option, and I would be tempted to do a much larger area than just the boo-boo. This way you can blend the area out more - tough to tell without seeing more of the image.
