Default Help with Touch Up?

Hey,
I have some real small scratches on my bumper, and i have that little bottle of Blue Subaru Touch up paint, so i was just gonna use that.
But....
What do you think i should use to make sure it looks good? Like should i sand? what grit paper should i use? ect...
All my friends call me crazy to want to fix it, thye can barely see it, but i notice it all the time, and i figure once the smoke clears tmw i will try this, but i wanted to get some advice from anyone with any expierence doing this!
late,
Chris

Use Mother's Paint Chip Repair Kit in conjunction with your factory touch uop paint. See www.mothers.com for details on how to use it. I used and am satisfied that it works relatively well.

Hint - don;t use the stupid piece of plastic they give you with it. Just wrap the cloth tight around your index finger and buff it that way (you'll know what I mean once you read up on it).

Have you ever used that stuff? I tried once and it didn't work for crap. Of course I was using the card, but oh well. What about using a buffer after it has been applied and dried?

Actually it was the langka labeled stuff I ordered. Have you had good luck with it, Larry?

I haven't used mine yet - I have about 40 spots to touch up, and am too lazy. Should be easy though.
