Cracked Sink After Dropping Glass Bottle Help Needed Quick

Postby horer1932 » Sat Oct 01, 2016 6:55 pm

Need some DIY advise quick!

I have dropped a glass bottle on my bathroom sink, causing it to crack. The crack is large, about 6" circular, however the pieces that make up the crack are relatively intact.
I have stuck one back in place with epoxy resin and the results are not that great, as the epoxy has taken up some space that the ceramic used to take meaning that there is a ridge. I know I can glue all the other pieces in place but suspect that I would need to use some waterproof filler and enamel paint (or similar) to finish the job off.

Why not buy a new sink? Well, all this is further complicated by 2 major issues, this sink is an odd size and I can't find one anywhere (500X400 edwardian style) and I am selling the house, expecting to complete in 2 weeks, so a replacement, even by insurance claim is probably too time consuming to finish in time.

Anyone got any good suggestions on how to fix this to a reasonable waterproof level please!
