Repairing the chipped edge of a marble counter or table can be achieved fairly easily using supplies purchased from a building supply store. It is more important to keep chips from happening, however, so that further damage doesn't occur. Although marble is a sturdy surface, it can be damaged if an item is dropped on it at the wrong angle or if something is bumped against the edge at a certain angle. Repairing the chipped area quickly is necessary to keep the damage from increasing as time passes.

  1. 1

    Tape around the chipped area using painter's tape.

  2. 2

    Put painter's tape around the Formica sample, so that the two part epoxy doesn't stick to it.

  3. 3

    Tape the Formica sample up against the edge of the countertop using the painter's tape.

  4. 4

    Mix the two-part epoxy according to the manufacturer's directions. The exact method may vary from brand to brand.

  5. 5

    Fill the chipped area with the two-part epoxy, but do not overfill the area.

  6. 6

    Allow the epoxy to dry thoroughly, about 24 hours, before removing the Formica sample from the edge of the counter.

  7. 7

    Remove the Formica sample and use a razor blade to shave the excess epoxy off of the countertop. Be sure that the epoxy is level with the countertop.

  8. 8

    Remove all of the painter's tape from the marble surface.
