Instructions

    Clean the sink with warm water and gently scrub any grime off the surface with a soft-bristled brush. Dry the sink with a towel.

    Fill the chipped area with epoxy. With a paintbrush, apply layers of epoxy until the chipped area is level with the rest of the sink's surface. Push epoxy into any cracks around the chipped area with the toothpick.

  3. 3

    Remove epoxy surrounding the repaired area before it dries with a damp sponge.

  4. 4

    Allow the epoxy to dry for 24 hours, then apply paint to the repaired area.

  5. 5

    Let the paint dry for 24 hours before using the sink.
