The touch up pens work best for small rock chip repair. I don't think you'd be very satisfied trying to fix a longer scratch with touch up paint.
The newer touch up paints come with a metal point inside the lid. After shaking really well, I take the brush inside, and put a small dot of paint on the back of an old license plate. I then take the metal point, wet it in the paint, and use that to apply the paint to the center of the rock chip.
It sometimes takes more than one application to bring the chip up to the level of the rest of the paint.
I posted a thread about taking care of scratches with some 3M products that should be on this page too. I'd try that before I touched up a longer scratch.

The Ford pen is a HORRIBLE match for my color. The best thing I found is a perfectly matching nail polish. The polish is actually a laquer.

There are some that are better than others, and I've found that the brighter the color and the more metal flake, the worse some of the touch up pens are.
For me, the Guard pen works well, but I would still never do a long scratch with it.....
You might also do others with your color a favor by posting the brand name and color of the fingernail polish you've found that works so well.

Cover Girl Outlast #185 is closer to perfect to match Red Candy than any touch up paint I have seen. Try it - You'll be surprised.
