    How do you patch chipped areas on the bumper? Since the paint has some
    thickness to it, I think I need some sort of filler to smooth it out with
    the rest of the bumper before applying the touch up paint.

    Any idea where to get this "filler" or what it is called?

    You can buy a can of spray filler or "spray putty" as it is sometimes
    called, from an auto paint shop. It's just a very heavy paint - you put on a
    few coats and sand it back smooth, then spray the final colour over it.
