Dr. ColorChip Corporation's paint-chip-repair kit uses a proprietary process to fix anywhere from a few to a few thousand chips in a matter of minutes, with professional, permanent results. Here's how it works: Paint is dabbed on the chip and smeared flat across it with the thumb, allowing it to dry very quickly. The SealAct blending solution is then applied to a folded rag or soft cloth and used to lightly blend the repair, removing all excess paint from the area. The result is a clean repair with no paint blobs. Go to www.drcolorchip.com for more info.
