Default Lower Receiver Touch Up Paint

Any recommendations on a touch up paint that one could apply in spots where the black anodizing has chipped?

I've used chalk board paint since I happened to have some laying around. Works great

I have used this too. Wears off after a while, but easy to reapply.

Someone turned me on to that and I found it works great on edges of the receiver. For touch up in the middle of a large flat area, you have to be careful because it may turn the metal darker than the surrounding anodizing.

black sharpie works ok for small ding. For larger scratch, you'll notice sharpie color tend to be more glossy than the matte finish of the original anodized surface.
