Exhibition reproducer lettering removed

When I had one of my exhibition reproducers rebuilt last year it came back with the lettering removed. I would like to paint the letters back on. Has anyone done this? Any pointers on what paint to use/not use? How to proceed?
Thanks

Who would have done that ?!?!

Anyway, I've rubbed a white crayon over the surface, while pushing and "grinding" the crayon wax into the letters. Then, I lay out a terry cloth towel on a flat surface and then rub the reproducer face across it till the crayon rubs off the areas surrounding the letters. I've never had to do the whole thing though, just a touch-up of a few areas. Might also work well with a grease pencil.
