Here is a second Chinese Tom from the 20’s that was painted gold.
I was able to get back most of the picture on the skin from behind the paint.
Then painted the shell in usual red color.
I think it’s much better now.

Very cool. It's all about the painted heads. I find it interesting that all the Chinese toms I've seen still have tension on the heads and sound surprisingly resonant, all things considered.
