Default Shot in the dark

I have a grello frame and fork, and was wondering if there is any concoction of paint (finger nail polishes, paint markers, or testers) that people have had success touching up this color

I know its a two stage thing with white and a special green, but I just want to address the little scratches on the frame without a complete repaint

thanks

Jim

hi Jim,

well I don't think you can find some test colors! You just have to mix it yourself.
As you know I painted my fork. First I have tried it myself, I bought a lime green spray. During the varnishing the color was exactly the same but after drying it had no color-changing effects in different lighting conditions! My painter told me this effect is produced by mixing a bit of neon yellow to it. He has done that and now you can't notice any difference to frame color.

A gello changes it's colour under different lighting conditions and when you improve a few small areas of non-matching paint, the difference is immediately visible.
