I love this website... no one cares about sharing thier most intimate mistakes! Last week I was finishing a project and even though I knew better, I had a PEN in my hand. Yes, I ran the point of the pen right across a suede triple- matted piece of work. I thought I was gonna die. Years ago when I worked in a restaurant I saw someone use hairspray to remove pen off of a customer's shirt. I figured it was 1:00a.m. and I didn't have anything to loose plus I was too tired to think clearly, so I tried it. Spray and blot with a cotton white rag and I even rubbed. IT WORKED! Not a trace of ink left. Maybe everyone knows this trick with suede mats (might possibly work with other material mats?) but it was new to me!
