Bathroom sink chip

Has anyone repaired a chip in the bathroom sink? I looked for info in my WRV papers but couldn't find the name of the manufacturer or any care information.

I have a chip in my kitchen sink too so I hope someone will come on and give us a hint as to how to repair it! One too many bumps on the road and when I opened the cabinet door above, a heavy coffee cup fell and chipped it.

My chip has been there for about a year and no wear and tear on the sink itself other than unsightly appearance with it. But surely, there's an answer!

The top is kidron, it is a man made material about any place that work with stone or man made material can fix it easy. look in the tele book for kitchen counter tops they can fix it in place. that is for the top as for the sink you can put a new one in they are very low cost and the stone shop can put it in. most shops have a line on the sinks.

Are you talking about the sink or the counter top?

In my case I am talking about the sink bowl itself. Are there repair kits on the market?

Harold:

Yes, Home Depot and Lowe's both sell a touch-up kit. If your sink is like mine, it is ceramic and you'll need a ceramic touch-up kit.

Madame's sink may actually be ceramic coated (most kitchen ones are, if not stainless-steel). She can use the same kit. If the scratches and damage is really unsightly, they also make a kit that coats the entire sink and looks great when done. It's not quite as durable as the original ceramic coat, but works well and easy.

Like Stoneman mentioned, if it is the bathroom ceramic sink, they are really cheap at Home Depot and easy to replace (or have replaced). If you can handle a screwdriver, some glue and make a few props to hold the sink up while drying, you'll have no problem.
