paint pens


I removed the drapes on 3 of our windows. There's small spots on the left and right side of the window where the drapes were attached to the drywall. Instead of buying paint is there such thing as paint pens that I can use to match the paint. The colors are not unique. Light brown and light green.

Never heard of them.
Light brown and light green could be any one of thousands of different shades, then there at least 4 different sheens.

There are paint pens... but they are intended for permanent marking on metals and such not decorative infill and touch-up in living rooms.

Maybe you can get close or good enough?

Since the areas are so small in each room I was even thinking about using crayons.

If you can get a small sample say from behind a light switch HD can match the color in 1 of those $4 little sample paint jars.
