How to Touch Up Regency Stacked Stone, Brick, and River Rock Panels

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.

1.) Apply the supplied Base Coat with a small artist brush, or Q-Tip. This material is a solvent based paint, 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 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, apply the appropriate tint color over the dry Base Coat with a brush.

4.) Very lightly dab the tint material with a soft rag to blend in with the surrounding area. This material is a water based Acrylic and you can take your time.

5.) Once the tint color is completely dry, approximately 1/2 hour, apply the wash material over the dry tint color with a brush. Again dab the wash with a rag to match the surrounding area.

6.) 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 the instructions above.

7.) Finished


How to Touch Up Regency Random Rock Panels

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.

1.) Depending on what color panel you have, there may be multiple colors in your touch up kit.

2.) Size, color and depth of the area to be touched up, will determine which touch up colors to use.

3.) Dilute latex touch-up paint with about 30% water.

4.) You might have to mix different colors to achieve different shades. Add water as needed and dab excess paint off for a more transparent look. Apply a small amount of diluted paint to moist cloth, small brush, sponge, or Q-tip.

5.) Start with lighter colors first, let color dry 10 to 15 minutes before applying the darker shades. Dab into desired area. If applied to undamaged areas, wipe quickly with clean damp cloth.

6.) Wipe excess paint off immediately. It is better to apply multiple thin coats of paint in small translucent shades and gradually darken the area to blend in. Keep dabbing and blending with a clean, damp cloth until the repaired area blends in with its surroundings.

7.) Finished
