I'm looking for something like a brilliant white glossy version of
Araldite or car body filler which could be used for filling chips in
crockery and basins, gouges or dings in enamel on baths etc. Anybody
know of such a stuff and where to get it? Obvously I'm after small
quantities - there's http://www.boatpaint.co.uk/cgi-bin/ca000002.pl but
I don't really want 3/4 litre at 30 squid inc VAT. I have also asked
epoxy-resins.co.uk who also tend to do massive quantities but do a
separate pigment at a more affordable 10+VAT-ish. Just thought I'd see
if anyone has any other leads.
Gelcoat filler from a yacht chandlers? It's polyester resin rather
than epoxy but it gives a better gloss finish. It's available in a
wide range of different shades of white to match the existing surface.
I asked my dentist for some of the "white filling" stuff. Cures using UV
light. Seems OK for small cracks in china. They come in various shades...
unfortunately none are pure white... but pretty close.
Aha. I have just the thing.
If you go to a model shop, and ask for 'micro balloons' you will get a
pot full of white amazingly light white powder
Mix this with modelling epoxy, and you get a white goo that will be
thick, white and sets in minutes.
Comparisons with IMM welcome.
