My S16 lenses witness marks have seen their better days. Is there a guideline somewhere or tutorial that would steer me to the right directions to refresh and repaint the these poor witness marks? Many thanks in advance.

Use a grease pencil to fill in the marks then wipe off the excess.

That's a new technique I never heard of :/ I'm actually trying to decide between enamel or acrylic paint.

Silver Sharpie if you're trying to finish a high school film project.
