Question on tissue paper faux finish

by Laurie
I am working on faux finishing 2 columns in my living room. I now have a couple of "blank spots" that need to be fixed! Not sure how to go about this and am concerned I will end up ripping some of the texture off! Should I take a razor blade and cut the blank sections out and re-do those areas? The blank sections did not adhere to the column well so is that a possibility? Or can I paint over the blank sections and apply new tissue paper without messing up the "good" textured sections? Help! This is my first faux finish project so appreciate all advice!

    Once the first layer of tissue and paint is dry you can go right over it!

    Thanks Shelly! I actually was able to take off the "bad" tissue paper, repaint and re-do with new tissue paper/paint. It looks WAY better now.

    Laurie, with what did you adhere the tissue paper? Mod podge? Thanks.

    I painted a base coat on and then applied the crinkled tissue paper and went over that with another coat of the base coat. I then will next apply a silver/dark gray metallic glaze which will give it an entirely different look.
