Today I show the restoration of the wedding-picture from my brazilian grandparents, who'll have their 65th wedding anniversary on the 27th of may.
The original (size: 11,87x16,56cm) is in a veryvery bad condition. I don't know what they've done with it, but it's very sad.
But okay, shit happens.
I scaned the original with 600dpi and edited it with the same Photoshop-tools as the last time. The restoration took up a lot of time (21 steps in 3hours and 20minutes and 9 cigarettes), but hey, it's for my grandparents and I think it's a wonderful gift for them!

First I printed the Original in b/w on plain paper (DIN A4 - 80g/m²). Then I painted it with watercolor (aquarelle). After the color was dry, I put a drawing paper over it, disrupted this a little bit and put a layer Scotch Tape over all. At last I scanned it and edited it with Photoshop CS.
For the Sandwich I took the Original and the Layer.
