Bumper scratches

My white Honda Accord 2016 have three srcatches on the bumper.
I use the touch up paint from the dealer.
The two smaller srcatches are covered by the touch up paint.
However, the largest srcatch (1 inch long) is still not covered. The "black" color of the bumper still appears.
What should I do?

    1) Stop by the body shop and ask if they think they could cover up the big scratch with touch up paint.

    Or

    2) Have the body shop re-spray the entire bumper

    Or

    3) Live with it

    I suggest 1) or 3).

    How about apply a strategically placed sticker?

    LOL... maybe go out and run a marathon, then apply 26.2?

    Try multiple thin layers of the touch-up paint.

    Sometimes the touch-up ends up looking worse than the original scratch. I would just live with it until you get more damage (if you do) and it starts to look beyond what touch-up can do. Then I'd repaint the bumper.
