DIY Kitchen Island Granite Chip

Please move this thread if it's in the wrong subforum. I accidentally chipped the edge of my granite island. Is there a DIY option to fill it in?

Like this:

I've attached a picture of the edge.

That link didn't work but yes, they make epoxy repair kits that fill the void.

Many granite supplier have repair services also!

The DIY link forwarding service is under construction. That kit you linked to will work for a DIY repair.

Thanks. The putty will fill the void and you use the color match to align the colors but how do you not notice the lack of swirls? It's not a solid color?

That chip is so small you won't notice the "fix". Well, you might , but no one else will.

After you have the base color correct..... you can swirl in a tiny bit of a darker color.
Probably use a toothpick to add the swirl.
