Touch Up Difference


Areas of indifferent colour with signs of application directionality

Possible Diagnosis:

  • Touching up with a poorly colour matched paint.
  • Touching up with the original retained paint while the existing coat has faded.
  • The touch up has been stored for a prolonged period of time and has degraded or colour developed.
  • Different types or batches of paint
  • Using application techniques that differ from the original e.g. touching up with a brush when the original coat was applied by roller.



  • Colour match before commencing with painting.
  • Recoat entire area from edge to edge/corner to corner
