I had on a brand new velvet top and held up a lit birthday cake too close to my top. The fabric did not get a hole burned in it, it just changed colors and you can see a round spot where it is lightly singed.
As long as the nap is not too damaged, you should be able to cover it with colour - ink, crayon, even paint. You may have to replace the colour frequently. Getting a match may be difficult - try combining colours; a bit like painting!
Can the nap on steam pressed velvet be restored?

I have a pair of silk velvet pants that I adore. However, they are several years old and the backside and crotch areas have become matted and shiny.
