I don't know if a remedy for everyone but I have a beige RCA radio. the radio was a painted beige over a bakelite brown. There were a large number of chips showing the brown. I went to home depot with a redio and they came up with a computerized color match. I got a cup of paint for $3 and used a tooth pick to fill in the voids. It worked well and adhereds.
Dont know how durable it is or how long it will last.

If there is over-spray on the inside, or the paint is uneven and has runs. Also most paint jobs are high gloss if factory. If you got a color match, was it with enamel?
If it was a paint with epoxy you will have a very durable touch-up.
