But if you get the materials, practice on cardboard most can do it. otherwise get a bottle of touch up paint and dab it on, wipe it smooth with your finger, let dry and buff it out

Hi there! Thank you for your tips! I am so grateful many have given me great advice here. Currently I am so busy but I need to find time to do some readings and research on the things people suggested here. Guess my main concern is if I am capable of fixing those holes. I am never good in artwork
