    Default Enamel paint colour change

    Help, please! I tried to touch up some cream enamel paint on kitchen cupboards, and as I had the original tin (10 years old) I thought it'd be ok. At first it looked great, but now after a week the colour has gone more pink/beige than cream. I know enamel yellows with age, but I haven't got time to paint everything again. Should I try and buy a paler cream paint and go over it?

    It is not possible to "touch up" enamel paint..
    Even with the original paint..

    You will need to repaint "complete" doors/panels required...

    If you bring a door or draw front into our store at Springwood,we will colour match to the current colour,allowing you to touch up ok.Most Paint specialists could do the same.
