Marisol Davila: What is the product you use to do this?
TimBrownSenorCafe: Will this work on teeth?? I don't want to waste my Fed Reserve Notes on a
I'm a painter, so am good with cutting in and taping off. Using a dremel
on my own teeth may be a stretch ! Got any quick dry enamel? cuz the drool
will be tough to keep out after the cotton ball saturates.....
moosolinisaki: What about a chip in a toilet bowl? It is below the water line so allowing
time to dry isn't an option. Any way to fix it?
Mike Klimek: A bottle of it costs $20-$25
shortbuiltguy: i used some of that on a chip in my bath tub, what i want to know is how to
make it look like part of the tub, i can see the chip polish, now i need to
make it look as natural as possable... any good ideas?
auntshea04: would this work on scratches on the bottom of the sink?
chevymtrsport: Mike, I'm not sure if you will see this in time as I am on vacation and
during a toilet repair I nicked the inside of the tub. I believe the tub is
from the fiberglass family of tubs. Will this product work well with a
fiberglass tub? I have read some negative feedback from the Homax White
Porcelain Chip fix. The common response is the product wears off quickly.
spunky Xee: Will this work on a bath tub too? I have a small chip on mine.
shortbuiltguy: the chip is by the drain so i fixed it, now i need to figure how to make it
blend into the bath so my room mate doesnt knotice it....
Mike Klimek: I wouldn't think it would work on scratches. The product is intended for
chips that you can fill in. A scratch, unless very deep, probably wouldn't
Mike Klimek: It will work on a bath tub also, but I wouldn't rely on it for a large
repair. If you have a chip on a flat surface you should be fine, but I
would be reluctant if the damage was on a curved surface, such as where the
side wall meets the floor of the tub.
RondaRai: What is the name of the product???
Mike Klimek: To jesika1984: If you try it on a larger sized chip, I would use very thin
layers of the liquid. You will probably have to use many thin layers, and
then try to follow the contour of the surface. Make it level so it blends
spunky Xee: @prohandymanlv Thanks :D
Mike Klimek: They sell bottles in a variety of colors including off-white (I think they
refer to the color as "bone").
Kenton Daniels: May need to flush out the bowl and turn the water off to the toilet for a
while. Dry it out with a rag or something and allow it to sit.
Mike Klimek: You can buy these porcelain repair kits at most home centers. This
particular one is called "Porc-a-fix" and can be purchased at Home Depot or
Lowes, although other hardware stores have similar products and come in a
variety of colors.
robert justus: how much does it cost
janice dobbins: how do you match the color. I have an off white tub.
Mike Klimek: To TracyG531...I used a product called Porc-a-fix, but they will all work
the same. The Homax product that jesika talked about is fine too.
Mike Klimek: Blending it in is the most challenging part....its a matter of sanding with
fine sandpaper (most kits include it in the package) until the area is
level with the surrounding area, then buff it to a shine to match the sink
or tub. It's best to use several thin layers rather than a thick coat.
RainbowCupcake420: I got something called Porcelain Chip Fix by HOMAX that I got at Lowes!
RainbowCupcake420: Would this be okay on a bigger chip the size of a nickel if not a bit
Mike Smith: What is the name of the product and where can you buy it? At least show a
picture of the bottle, ugh! :(
