Paint chip

I have a bibi-sized paint chip on my door. I have purchased the touch up paint from ford, and was wondering what would be the best way to do this. Any suggestions? Thanks

I'm curious also from another point of view.

I was told if it happened was to get a primer then just use the touch up. Since the touch up tends to flake? Idk.

I've read on other forums of the folks that have used that touch up paint process they advertise on TV; they dab, smear, and the chip disappears. They say it works great; no complaints. I'd try that over the touch up paint first.

This:

And here's an youtube vid on how it works:

Dr colorchip really works. The only complaint some people have is it wearing off after a year or so but not bad. But keep in mind if its real deep Dr colorchip will not work , its for minor surface scratches

Use a paper match as a brush to apply the paint, works better than an actual brush, because it doesn't over apply the paint.

If you do over apply, do not attempt to wet sand it down like the YouTube videos. Our paint isn't on there very thick you will end up wearing the paint around the touch up spot creating a half moon spot. I learned the hard way and had to hit it with touch up again several times. Wish I would have just left it alone.
I have heard good things about Langka. Google it or go here.. http://www.langka.com/

If I were to do it over I would try this.
