I am restoring a Philco 39-331 that has a 20 by 24 inch grill cloth that was severely stained with large water marks in two corners. It is still glued to the speaker board and I was afraid that washing or other cleaning methods would damage the cloth or fail to remove the stains.<P>My wife, the artist, suggesting "dry brushing" the cloth with acrylic craft paint while it was still on the board. Not wanting to argue with managment I let her go ahead.<P>The results are great! It would be difficult to find the marks unless you know where to look.<P>The fabric had faded to a fairly even gold color and an apropriate color of paint was used to hide the marks.<P>Note that this was dry brushing and the cloth was not saturated or sealed with the paint.<P>Ed. <P>------------------<BR>
