Instructions

  1. 1

    Clean the sink before repairing the damage. Simply rinse the sink with warm water and wipe it down with a soft cloth.

  2. 2

    Use an epoxy adhesive such as Nick Fix to fill in the chipped area. The epoxy will act as a filler and glaze in one. Use the provided applicator attached to the top of the bottle; or, use the paintbrush and toothpick for finer cracks near the chipped spot.

  3. 3

    Allow the adhesive to dry for 24 hours. Paint over it with an appliance paint that matches the colour of the sink.

  4. 4

    Let the paint dry for 24 hours.
