    Well, I have a freind who tries on RC glossy. Work quite okay. But I think it's best to work on a surface which are easy to do treatment on. There are many ways of doing a handcoloring print. Apart from using oil-based, there are coloring dyes as well which you can use. Apart from that, if you are using watercoloured based paper, you could even use coloured-pencils on the print.

    If it is a coloured print, you can remove any black spot by gently scraping it with a good craft knife. ( I use a laboratory scapel for that). If there is white dust spot, you can easily use any touchup kit available in the market to touch up the holes. I think you can get them from cathy. For black and White would be much easilier. I use a airbrush to touch up very fine print using acrylic-based inks.

    For colored print, I advise you to just use ready-made touchup kit and fill the spot in with a fine brush.
