Fix small chips in granite countertop?
Can small nicks/chips in a granite slab be repaired without being totally noticable? Maybe by changing to a honed finish? They are all small and shallow, quite a bit smaller than the head of a pencil eraser, and not as deep as a pencil lead..
Doing a google search I found a few products that can supposedly be used as filler and it not be noticible, but I'm doubtful. It's for a vanity and we have an extra sidesplash that we don't need. I'm not sure if there is some way to grind chips of it and mix with resin...? I'm reaching here, I know.
It is a mottled granite that looks like this:
Any advice or words of wisdom are appreciated. :)
Clear epoxy would be what I would try. Mix it up, put it in the scratch or hole, let cure then scrape flat with a scraping blade or new razorblade. Use Acetone to buff and shine the epoxy.
I wouldn't try to color match the epoxy as you'll see.
We always color match the epoxy for repairs and seams, why are you saying not to?
