I feel because it is your first time now would be the perfect time to give it a try cause it is so small. I'm sure it's best also to match the weight of the ptex with your base but being such a small scratch I don't think It'll make that much of a difference. Also if its clear/white I don't think It'll be too noticeable on a white base.

Sorry I don't know much about the process of ptexing as I have never had to do it before (somehow) haha also I couldn't comment on the thickness of a snowboard base, hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be able to help you there.
