Default Best way to touch up lower receiver

Hi everyone,

I noticed on my lower there are these little tiny specs that look like the finish is flaking off.

What is the best way to touch this up? It really annoys me looking at it. Any small touch up pens anybody recommends?

You will never find a perfect match.
Anything you "paint" on there will look different than the base finish and the lower will look worse than it does now.

Have the outside of the receiver sandblasted and cerakoted so the whole receiver matches itself.
