Filling paint chips?????

After 14K miles on my grocerygetter, I've go a few rock chips in the paint (single stage urethane). In the past I've used a very small brush to dab a spot of paint into the chip, but there is always some overlap onto the undisturbed paint, leaving a little "bump" in the finish. Even with buffing, the bump is still there.
Does anyone know of a way to fill these dings and not leave the "touch up paint" bump?
Thanks

I try to lay the touch-up paint in the chips slowly. I don't try to fill the chip in all at one time. I lay a light coat in it and let it dry thoroughly, then reapply each layer that way until flush with the original paint surface. It takes time, but works.

If the fill is high, try wet sanding it lightly with a block, so it levels it with the other paint. That is assuming that it isn't a metalic color.
