Default Touch up paint for Bowen statues?

I had a little display case accident recently and several of my Bowen statues have some small nicks on them. Was wondering if anyone has had this problem and if it's possible to buy some type of touch up paint to try and fix them. If so, where would you go to find it? Hobby Lobby maybe?

My condolences on your loss.

I've always used Tamiya Acrylics for touching up Bowen stataues and busts,
They seem to have the best color matching and I've seen pictures of Bowen painters with works in progress that have bottles of Tamiya paints in the background, so they use them too.

They're available at most larger hobby stores, although you'd probably have a better selection at big stores that sell plastic models and R/C planes and cars than chain stores like Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
There are also a ton of online hobby outlets that sell individual bottles by mail order.
Here's a couple of links to get you started.

Yep. Tamiya acrylics ARE the best to use. Used them on my faux bronze Sub Mariner and they worked a treat.
