I must say, that is a very cool product... I am esp interested, since my car was just recently keyed....

ozarkmark is an unknown quantity at this point
Another option is buying the OEM touch up paint and carefully applying it with a tooth pic. It helps if the tooth pic is just barely wet with paint. Using a magifying glass really makes it easy too.
Repeat the tooth pic procedure with the clear coat.
No blobs!

I almost never use the cap brush that comes with the paint.

I found the toothpick trick to work nicely. Instead of using the brush get a ball of paint on the end of a tooth pick and let it touch the chip and fill, less ikky mess...but this stuff looks interesting
