      @Adrianne C thanks! what kind of laminate filler do you recommend? Mama's Miracle Linen Soak recommended to use enamel (see below). Do you recommend other materials?

    Two suggestions: Try using the "enamel" that is sold to repair chipped tubs, but be sure to buy the kind that builds up layers. It should cost about $5 or $6. The other suggestion is to buy the kind of hobby enamel paint made for painting model airplane. It comes in tiny glass bottles so you won't be stuck with a lot of extra paint. Match or mix your color, and choose a paint with the proper amount of gloss. Use a tiny brush and paint only the part where the formica is missing.

    We have a 1/2 wall with a white formica top that has chips also. Over the weekend, we took regular white paint and went over the chips to make them less noticeable and it worked great! We used a satin white paint and the chips are not noticeable anymore!

    How about "white out". I used this once on my dishwasher rack on a stem holder that had been scratched and washing anything set over it made a rusty spot ~I tried white out and it has been through 3-4 years more, still doing a great job hot water and all!!!! No rust!!

    Have you tried using acrylic paint?

    I've used (believe it or not) nail polish. Comes in absolutely any colors and you can just dab it on, one coat at a time, until you like the finished result.
