Although the tiles are durable as floor or countertop covers, the tiles fall off easily if you drop sharp or heavy objects.When you cut a hole in the tile, you can fix the hole without removing the tile.With epoxy, you can fill the hole to make it less noticeable and prevent the hole from getting bigger.This method is especially useful when you patch old or vintage tiles with discontinued colors.Clean the holes in the tiles with dishwashing soap and water.Wipe the area clean with a wet rag to remove the soap.Let the tiles dry for a few hours;The interior of the tile is usually porous so that the water you use to clean will penetrate into the interior.The tiles must be completely dry in order to repair the holes effectively.Apply a thin layer of tile primer on all sides of the hole with a small painter\'s brush.Let the primer dry.The Shard area is usually different from the finish color on the tile, so you have to be ready to paint the area.Apply a layer of oil-Paint on the primer.Rise to the finished edge of the tile, but not over.The paint should exactly match the color of the tile;Bring an extra tile to the paint shop if possible to help you find the tile that matches exactly.Let the paint dry and then add a second layer coating if necessary to match the color of the tile.Mix the two parts of the transparent marine epoxy filler in a solid bowl.Base and activator are used for epoxy resin.After the epoxy is mixed and applied to the tile, a hard waterproof surface is created.Add epoxy filler to the hole of the tile using toothpick or small craft stick.Fill the hole with the top of the tile until the hole reaches the level.Let the epoxy dry for 24 hours, then wet or place the item on top.
