Paint chip/scratch help

Anyone have any suggestions or product info to cover up some chips/scratch on my front bumper? Thanks

I had good results from Dr Color Chip. I had a small chip near the front of my hood. Touched it up and then had Xpel put over it. I can't even find the chip now. Before the Xpel, I could find it if I looked, but now I can't.

This is very basic - do a google search for more:

Clean the area then wipe with a paint prep/acetone/alcohol...

Apply the paint thinly in several layers (do not do one thick blob). I like using a plastic tooth pick -you can let the paint drop roll down the pick right into the chip.

Apply enough thin coats that the filled in area slightly raises above the surrounding paint. Let dry for 7-10 days for the paint to out gas and shrink. Apply more touch up paint if needed.

Lightly sand the top of the bump smooth to the rest of the paint.

Polish to restore the shine.
