Multiple coats. Just keep layering in to fill. For down to grey probably 2-3 coats. then Clear coat. At least that tends to work with the metallic. not sure on the non metallic, but probably around there. remember the paint contracts as it dries, so when you end up just above the surface when you dab it on it will be flush. Just don't blob in a giant drop all at once.

You could also go real crazy and feather sand and stuff, but I wouldn't just for a chip that isn't rusting. Hit up a pick a part and buy a fender and practice before you do that though.
