    I bought touchup paint for my PowerBook G4 but to be honest it's not an identical match. Though the scratch may bug you I'm not sure if you want to gamble $20 for paint that may not satisfy.

    I tried the same paint from the above link before, the conceAL version for aluminium macs (which the MBP is). The color doesn't really match at all, when I got it I was expecting something a little bit more opaque and silvery that can really cover the scratch but its a little bit more translucent and when dried, it isn't as shiny as the aluminum body. My suggestion is not get that.

    How big of a scratch do you have? If next to the trackpad, maybe try a palm wrist to cover it up.
