Default fixing paint chips with touch up paint

So I bought a paint from Toyota dealer to fix some of the paint chips I have. I am curious on what other items I might need and how to actually use this thing ? I am trying to fill in some kinda bit deep scratch, and high way rock paint chips on my hood. Any tips ? advice ?

What's the verdict? Were you able to successfully touch it up?

I use Dr. Colorchip. Much easier to use verses traditional T U Paint!

I'm usually not a fan of these infomercial type products but if you tried it and it works I thank you for your feedback!

Great video. I need to try this. I used some paint pens I bought online but didn't have the greatest success.
