Help: paint touch-up advice

I backed into a telephone pole yesterday while parallel parking. Can someone please give me advice on how to repair/repaint the damaged area. No dent, just scraping. I was thinking of using Goop to clean off the tar-like smudge on the panel. I have the touch up paint (Super White) from the dealer that i purchased for minor problems but not sure if this would work. Does Toyota (or an automotive paint supplier) sell Super White in a small spray can? Thanks in advance for your advice?

I got this off of amazon:

Amazon.com: Genuine OEM Automotive Touch Up Spray Paint (Basecoat/Clearcoat) for Toyota - Select Your Color (1A5 Desert Dune Metallic): Automotive

I spent about 45$ but i bought both clear coat and the paint, so you can get it for less, so long as you get the correct paint color.

Thanks Rod for the quick reply. Should I get the basecoat or the touchup paint?

Here's the most important question you need to think about: How picky are you about the looks of your vehicle? If you're picky, going to a reputable body shop is the only way to fix that so you won't know it was damaged. If you're not picky, listen to all of the idiots who will tell you that a rattle can will repair the damage perfectly.

To be honest, it just depends on what you want to put into it, the base is for like larger areas but you can perfect it with sanding and clear coat etc, but touchup is cheaper and a bit easier to use

Also curious about this-- honestly I don't care at all about the look. I just want to prevent the paint from chipping and creating space for rust to build.

Blending clear coat is tricky, there is a specific formulation of clear to do this
