Tile Grout Touchup


I painted my fireplace exterior surround. I taped off the tile and grout but still got some of the paint on a small area of the grout thus discoloring the grout. Assuming that I can find the color of the grout, is there something that tile stores sell(maybe like tubes of caulk like material) that I can put over the top of the discolored area to make the grout match once again? Thanks.

Tile Grout Touchup


How bad is it? Often simply scraping off the paint and exposing the grout is all that is needed--

Grout colorants are available---but it's just a paint on material--I never liked the finished look---
