    Option 1 - Red felt tip.

    Option 2 - Local paint store and get them to mix up some colour match paint.

    Option 3 - take apart your joycon to the shell and get some spray paint and spray it a new red or maybe gold.

    Option 4 - scratch it some more to give it a unique and distinctive distressed look

    Option 5 - live with it!

    Option 6 - replace the shell. I think there are replacements being made in the original colours, but there's also a lot of people fitting custom shells who might have a spare original you can buy from them. There's a guy selling them regularly in the Trade forum, but if he's not local to you then maybe you can find someone who is.
