Start your repair by cleaning the damaged area with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab or a cotton pad. Next, cut out a piece of backing fabric with rounded edges, larger than the damaged area. Insert the backing fabric into the damaged area with the help of the spatula included in the kit. You can use the colors included in the kit or match the right color for your project with the help of the digital resources we have compiled for you, accessible via the resource access card included in your kit. After matching your color, apply the compound to the damaged area with the spatula. Start from the outside by filling compound under and along the edges. Work your way from the outside to the center of the damage and level the surface. Allow the compound to dry for several hours. If needed, reapply additional layers to the damaged area. When the compound is dry and no longer sticky, use a cotton pad or a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol to buff the edges. Select the suitable grain paper and apply pressure to the repaired area. Leave the grain paper on for several hours before gently removing it from the repaired area. We wish you all the best with your repair project!
