There seems to be a large amount of people who are using tea bags to fix chips on the sides..........

PLEASE stop doing this,please stop telling people to use this method,it does not match,it does not work well,and it creates stained tiles........that as they age get worse with the stains.

The solution is simple.........at any art suply store,I use Michaels,there is Acrylic paint......I use Americana Brand in a small 1 oz bottle,cost is under $1 most days........the exact color to use is RAw Umber.......

wipe on wipe off........that simple not stains,no damage,this works on larger chips as well,but they need filled with the proper materials..........plaster of paris is not correct material......stop using it to patch tiles to sell,goodness people if it has a chip sell it with the chip........diclose damage,disclose repairs,honesty is always best...........
Beer...........It's not just for breakfast anymore.
