    Is there any way to get a tin of a discontinued dulux colour?

    The colour in question being 'Real Indigo'. I can't find it anywhere online. I really don't want to have to paint the bathroom again. Just wanting to touch up a couple of areas.

    Thanks in advance.

    usually a decorator centre can mix the colour for you, but i dont know if they keep records of their legacy paints on the computer

    Even if you get a matching colour the original paintwork will have cured and slightly changed colour, never very successful patching up paintwork .

    I don't think you'll be able to touch up on a wall that's been painted a while. You'll see where you've touched up!

    I thought you could take a small sample of the existing paintwork and they can scan it to match it?

    For a whole wall it may look ok but to just touch up walls. Even if you had the original paint you'd most likely see where it's touched up after a period of time.
