At Homecoming you get to see how the BMW final inspection techs do it. They use a very small artists brush to layer VERY thin layers of paint IN the chip.

They keep doing this, letting it dry maybe a minute each layer, until the scratch is filled to the top, but not over filled. A quick rub with polishing compound and it is done and virtually invisible.
