Filling trim removal holes in bodywork?

On older cars removing badges or in some cases the trim or chrome strip that runs down the centre line leaves holes in the body.
Is there any way of filling these holes so that they become invisible,with say a respray?
It seems a v difficult job.
I attempted it once on an old vw beetle, grp patch behind. then some isopon and blended then repainted,little circles appeared after awhile
Ive also seen people buying plastic studs/rivets putting them in and painting..
Instead of a car with a strip/badge they now have one with knobbly bits.
Is there a more pro way of doing it,I cant find anything with searches?.
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
