My husband was crafting and wanted to know what the touch up feature was.

Gives you a chance to get a High Quality as a result.

I've had touch up succeed where it changes the item result on the top right of the synth window into +2 right away after using it; I could still use touch up again but I didn't want to risk it.

When you finish a synthesis, based on your quality you have a chance of HQing (High Quality) the result.

What touch up does is basically say, "Hey, I have extra durability, and I didn't get a HQ". What you can do is sacrifice some of that durability in order to reroll for a HQ. Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don't, it's completely random.

Touch up takes anywhere from 7 durability to 20 (20 if it's sparking), so be careful. You can still botch it using touch up.

I had 41 durability lost from a touchup. Was making a harpoon some weeks ago and I had 42 durability left. Did a touchup and went down to 1. I almost had a tantrum o_O

Gotta watch for sparks with Touch Up. If you've got any kind of sparking at all, you can lose a pretty substantial amount of durability if you keep using it.

No sparks at all, it was a difficult synth but I had no sparks or unstable elements.
