porcelain tile repair

I have a porcelain tile floor. Unfortunately, during a remodeling job several tiles must have had hammers dropped upon them, leaving a slight chip on the tile. Is there a porcelain filler that I may use to fix the tiles?

Not familiar with anything for porcelain. Granite fabricators has epoxies and dust mixes they use to fill the seams of countertops, maybe that would work. Try a local fabricating shop and see what they suggest.

Get real! You find the match for the tile after a few years. At least Tileguybob had something constructive to offer.

That's why you keep a few extra after every job, just in case, same for shower walls, always have enough to do the shower body wall, when the plumber comes to fix that leaky body years down the road.

I only suggested the correct way to fix this problem, everything else is a patch and will be noticed, but yes, epoxy, grout, nail polish, magic marker, crayons, colored mortar, and paint will all help.
