Default Volk Bronze touchup paint?

I have searched and most people say there is no known match, but if anyone has tried out something before let me know.
I have one curb rashed CE28n and would like to fix it as good as I can.
I do know Rota makes touchup paint, but that bronze is not very close.

it's hard to replicate the metallic luster of anodized finishes

Exactly. You can't use paint on a finish that is basically machined/polished with a "bronze" tint.

Best bet is to either do a full color change for all 4 wheels or purchase one new wheel because you won't find any easy method for making the blemish look unnoticeable on a Rays anodized finish.

So what have people tried that hasn't worked? There are a few threads with people asking the question, and the answer is always the same - "It can't be done." Which means that someone must've tried something, otherwise how do we know what doesn't work.

I'm not looking for an "unnoticeable" repair, I'm just looking to cover the silver exposed metal. These are just my brake-dust-impregnated auto-x wheels, not show wheels.
