You asked about finding the right color Mica powders like scrap bookers use can be mixed with the epoxy to get what ever color you need. Mix the Mica powder powder in before you add the hardener so that you have time to mix it completely and match the color be sure to mix it in, in small amounts a little goes a long way. . Then add the hardener and follow the directions for applying it. I keep track of how much color i added so that if i need to fix another chip I already know how much to use. I write it down and put the mica powder into an envelop and mark it. For example " master bath sink repair" and in that envelop I have the brand of my fixtures when I bought them and a part # and maybe a replacement washers for the sink and tub and or shower. Oh and a photo copy of any parts receipts so I can use the warranty if needed and the warranty info. Then use duct tape to tape it to the inside side of the cabinet usually on the right as I'm right handed or the inside of the door and high enough that if there is a leak it wont get to the info.

I could use some advice on where to find epoxy for older sinks, bath tubs and toilets because the colors are usually not available. For instance, my bathroom sink and toilet a beige color with a rosey undertone. I have been unable to find anything to match and mixing is all but impossible because the places I have been to don't carry the colors I would need to use as a mix.
Is there any place you know of that specializes in the older colors?
Thanks for your help.
