If you happen to be using watercolors and end up destroying your canvas you can rectify the mistake by using water spray.You can cover the rest of the painting using the masking tape this hence helps the painter to rub off the color.
You may also want to use a pestle if you’re not comfortable with the water spray the pestle is mostly used to cover huge areas that have been overworked, and they make the areas appear as if they were freshly done and no much work was done on the part of the painting.
