Download this page as a printable PDF

Tools and Supplies You'll Need

  1. Touch-up Paint
  2. Paintbrush
  3. Damp Rag
  4. Bondo or Wood Putty (Only needed for large gouges or punctures)

Directions:

To do this project you will need to use the touch-up paint that is made for your panels. We recommend practicing this on a scrap piece before working on your panels.

Select which style of panel you will be touching up:

Touching up a single color Norwich Panel (Golden Wheat, Graphite, Rusty Tan)

1.) Apply the Base Coat for your panel with a small artist brush, or Q-Tip. This material is an Acrylic Lacquer, and will dry quickly. You will need a solvent such as lacquer thinner or nail polish remover to clean your brush.

2.) Do not apply to heavy a coat, only enough to completely cover the affected area. Let the Base Coat completely dry, approximately ½ hour.

3.) Once the Base Coat is completely dry, approximately ½ hour, apply the Wash to your brush, or Q-tip.

4.) Apply the Wash over the dry Base Coat. This material is a water based Acrylic and you can take your time to blend the Wash to match the surrounding area.

5.) When the Wash is dry, your repair is complete.


Touching up a multicolor Norwich Panel (Canyon Gray, Sierra Brown, Desert Sand)

1.) Apply the Base Coat for your panel with a small artist brush, or Q-Tip. This material is an Acrylic Lacquer, and will dry quickly. You will need a solvent such as lacquer thinner or nail polish remover to clean your brush.

2.) Do not apply to heavy a coat, only enough to completely cover the affected area. Let the Base Coat completely dry, approximately ½ hour.

3.) There are four different colors of stone, and the neutral color. If the affected area is on the neutral color, apply a light coat of the Wash over the dry Base Coat with a brush. This material is a water based Acrylic and you can take your time to blend the Wash to match the surrounding area.

4.) If the affected area is on a colored stone, choose the corresponding color of touch-up paint and apply to a rag.

5.) Apply the color over the Base Coat. Very lightly dab the colored touch-up with a soft rag or your finger to blend in with the surrounding area.

6.) Once the color is completely dry, approximately ½ hour, apply the Wash as instructed above.

7.) When the Wash is dry, your repair is complete.


Touching up a Norwich Coral Panel (Aged, Bleached, Sandstone)

1.) To repair minor scratches and abrasions:

2.) Apply the Coral Base Coat with a small artist brush, or Q-tip. This material is an Acrylic Lacquer, and will dry quickly. You will need a solvent such as lacquer thinner or nail polish remover to clean your brush. Do not apply to heavy of a coat, only enough to completely cover the affected area. Let the Base Coat completely dry, approximately 1/2 hour.

3.) Once the Base Coat is completely dry, approximately 1/2 hour, apply the Coral Glaze over the dry Base Coat with a brush. This material is a water based Acrylic and you can take your time to blend the Wash to match the surrounding area.

4.) When Glaze is dry, your repair is complete.

For larger gouges or punctures, first repair the gouge with a wood putty, or bondo, available at your local hardware store. Lightly sand the putty smooth, to match the surrounding area, and then follow instructions above.
