Will repainting old tole tray destroy value?
I have an old 21 x 27 inch tole tray with areas of missing paint. In fact, entire roses are missing as well as leaves. The underlying black paint is also in poor condition. I am familiar with tole techniques, and I have been painting in oil for quite a long time. In other words, I will not make a mess out of the repair.
My question is, will repainting the missing areas destroy the value of the tray?
Is it better to leave it in its worn condition?
