Touch Up Norwich Columns

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 columns. We recommend practicing this on a scrap piece, if possible, before working on your column. Touch ups may be needed over areas where you need to conceal the caulking, spots were cuts were made and exposed the raw polyurethane, or on other areas where touch ups may be required.

Select which style of column you will be touching up:

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

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

2.) Don't apply a heavy coat to the column. Only use enough to completely cover the affected area. Let the Base Coat completely dry (approximately ½ hour).

3.) Once the Base Coat is completely dry (approx. 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 touch up is complete.


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

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

2.) Don't apply a heavy coat to the column. Only use enough to completely cover the affected area. Let the Base Coat completely dry (approximately ½ hour).

3.) There are four different stacked stone colors and a 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. You can take your time blending 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 soft rag.

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

6.) The color should be completely dry after approximately ½ hour. Once dry, apply the Wash as instructed above.

7.) When the Wash is dry, your touch up is complete.
