How to paint the Jem 10th Pickguard Flowers?

I wanted to maybe fix the faded paint on the pickguard especially where the palmute hand have been etc.
How can this be done right?
What colour code is that brown grayish colour?
I am re chroming the dimarzio pickups so i thought a little fixing on the guard will make the guitar new.

I would leave it as-is. Anything I can think of for you to try will either be temporary, or potentially dangerous for the pickguard. (I think the guard would need to chemically etched to securely bond the paint)

Even if you could find the exact match of paint, which I highly doubt, your actions will devalue your guitar.

Peace

Re: How to paint the Jem 10th Pickguard Flowers?

Ive done this. Ive bought a 10th a few yrs ago on ebay and some of the black areas were coming off. btw, is yours brown grey? Mine looks black to me. Anyway, I used a pen with a fine tip to fill in the bits. I couldnt find one fine enough to do the stems but for larger areas and for the text it was fine. Anyway, I'll have a look and see what pen I used and take some pics.

Anymods you do will potentially devalue the guitar. I wasnt planning to resell mine as Ive wanted a 10th since 96. I also did some ding repairs on my 10th also.
