Scratched Tubes

My tube is scratched as if i tried to slice it with a knife. The thin outer skin (coloured rubber part) is cut and can see the fabric. Obviously its not heavily damaged or a danger. But I would like to cover this up; and maybe close the cut. If I use the rubber paint to close off this cut and not to show, you think that this will work?

Any more ideas?

You may be better by applying a large fender like patch.
and one the other side to match.
I don't think paint would be the solution.
