Limestone repair

by Leo Levy
(Tamarac, Florida)

My bathroom limestone counter top has a chip in it, about 1/2 inch in diameter. How can I repair it?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please take a look at my video http://youtu.be/KsEemyQsMSw
Which shows how to repair travertine with 2 part epoxy resin and artist pastels. It's inexpensive and quick!

You can buy the individual pastel colors that best match your limestone rather than buying a whole kit like I did.

This same formula can be used to repair stone, tile, granite, etc. And is easy to do.

Hope this helps!

Stick Epoxy
by: John Bubenik

Another alternative would be to look for colored stick Epoxy. (One manufacturer is Mohawk.). Each stick contains both "A" & "B" portions. The chemical interaction between the components does not begin until the stick is kneaded for a minute or two. Two or more colors could be mixed together to create the color you need. (Consult a color wheel or an artist’s book on achieving color, if you need help.). Best of all the Epoxy hardens within 20 minutes and can be scraped and/or sanded flush. A clear protective coat is recommended. A spray polyurethane in a sheen similar to your stone makes for an easy application.

Hi Leo,

This page explains the steps to fix cracked or chipped tile, stone, granite, etc. by using 2 part expoxy resin and artist pastels as a colorant. It is very durable and easy to match just about any color by mixing ground pastel crayons in various shades until you get a match.

I would either look for a kit that has similar colors or go to an arts and craft store like Michael's and buy individual colors that closely resemble the limestone you are trying to mimic.

Please take a photo when you're done and let us know how it turns out!
