Chip repair

I Finished painting one of my fenders ....with the fender off the car. 3 coats of single stage red and three coats of clear. I stored the fender in the garage and a paint can fell from the top shelf and took a big chip out of the paint on the fender. Is there a way I can mask off around the chip....fill it...prime it and then paint it and blend it in somehow? For some reason I think this will be harder than it sounds to have it turn out well. The car is not back together and I am painting it in pieces...so the car isnt finished yet.

Or....should I sand the entire fender down (Maybe 400 grit ?) and re-shoot the entire thing. Thanks.
