How to touch up White Orchid Pearl paint?

I have new 2016 Accord and after the first and hand wax job today, the detailer pointed out 3 small rock chips on the hood when I came to pick up the car.

What is the best way to touch up the paint? Honda touch up paint or Dr. Color Chip?

Is there a special technique for WOP and is there anything special that needs to be done to apply touch up paint on a recently waxed car?

Do not use Dr Color Chip on WOP! WOP is a 3-stage paint and Honda OEM touch-up comes as a base coat and a top-coat (the pearl in WOP) and Dr Color Chip is only single stage. I tried it and it's an awful match. Just buy the Honda OEM set at your dealer or one of the online places.

As for application, you basically apply the base coat and allow it to dry, then apply the top coat.

The Dr ColorChip site says it works.


How do you apply the Honda touch up paint so that it blends in with the rest of the paint as smoothly as possible?

Of course they say it works. They have a marketing department. The Honda touch-up paint is close, but it will never be perfectly smooth. Forget the brush it comes with, and try applying it with a toothpick.

The only way to level it with the rest of the surrounding paint is to wet sand and then polish out the sanding marks. I don't recommend it unless you know what you are doing.
