Introduction: Chip Repair for Dishes
last December we purchased 12 each of dinner plates, salad plates, small bowls and large bowls.
soon after 6 of the 12 dinner plates each had 1 small chip like this plate.
colored permanent makers
clear 1-5 minute setting epoxy glue
wire for mixing and applying epoxy glue
a tolerance for less the perfection
Step 1: Color the Damaged Area
I started with blue because the plates are blue
Step 2: Adding the Color Edge Trim
the plates have a brown edge so I added that with a brown maker
Step 3: Getting the Color Right
the blue maker was too blue so I added some green on top to a better match
Step 4: Mixed Up the Epoxy and Applied It
I used a round metal wire to both mix and apply the epoxy
the round end helped with the placed on the edges of the chip
while not perfect, it is less noticeable and should offer more months of service.
