Other than removal of tile, is there any way to repair this substantial chip. Went to Home Depot but they didn't have any product.

    There are a lot of tile repair kits available, but they tend to be expensive. I, personally, would use would use a two part epoxy putty to fill the hole. Fill the hole a little above flush, let it harden overnight, then tape off the area around the repair, sand smooth with the surface, mix ceramic craft paints using a fine brush and match the rest of the tile. Here is another site using auto body filler: ***** http://www.ronhazelton.com/tips/how_to_repair... http://www.ronhazelton.com/tips/how_to_repair...

    You could use tile grout in the same colour and then use paint to duplicate the design of the tiles.

    Are you sure that is tile?The area has the look of damaged wood.Put in wood filler mixed with Weldbond wood glue,use a putty knife to do the edge,let it dry,sand it lightly with 220 grit sandpaper,and then stain and seal!

      .Put epoxy type glue on a piece of cardboard,mix it with a stain color that matches,let it set for about 15 minutes to a half hour.It should be able to be molded into place.Press flat with a putty knife.Take the cardboard with the side you mixed it on.Put that over the spot.Put a heavy book on it,until it sets completely!

      Or a couple of shavings of different browns to mimic the colors/pattern in the tile.

    Bondo -- it cures rock hard and it takes paint beautifully.

    My thought too! Bondo!! Then go to an art store where they have felt markers in EVERY color and color it. Put a little poly on it to keep the color. on.

    Repair in two parts. First is to fill the hole with a hard setting filler, being careful to remove excess filler contaminating the rest of the tile. Then, once hardened, carefully sand the filler smooth as best as you can, without sanding the adjacent tile surfaces. Secondly, use a colour matching stain or paint to make the "flaw" melt into the rest of the tile. As you show a timber lokk tile I would say it would be best to stain the flaw in slightly darker colour which will seem to the eye to be a natural timber feature.

    Rock putty should work. Then paint it to match tile. It dries a cream color.
