Restoration 101 - How to restore etched Headbadge!

Use  chemical stripper and a wire brush and carefully remove the old pain

Apply PVA glue (craft/white glue) with a toothpick to the surface you don't want to paint on.

After it dries, apply the paint to the other potion of the badge

Once you're done, scrape the PVA glue off with your fingernails

You might have to do this process over and over again depending on the complexity of the headbadge design
