Hi Dan

I know there is a brush type touch up paint but it is more for nicks and scratches, and it is microwave paint strictly for microwave ovens. I have used it many times. Let me make a phone call to our supplier to see if they sell a larger version or can. I should be back in about 10 minutes.

Hello Dan,

This is a larger version of the correct type of paint to use. Do not just use any paint, you cannot use just any kind. Some paints contain metal which would damage the microwave. And others contain chemicals not meant for use in food service.
