I recently tried to fix a number of small holes in a wall that is painted with brown semi-gloss paint. Unfortunately, the paint patches are still very obvious, even after several days of drying:
Notice that the color itself matches quite well - what doesn't match is the glossy-ness of the patches, particularly around the edges. The center of each painted patch actually matches the wall quite well.
I painted these patches using the wall's original paint (although the paint is several years old, I think) using a small brush.
How can I paint over these patches so that the end result blends in with the existing wall? Or is there some other way to blend these patches in with the wall?
