I have a crack in the porcelian or china sink in my bathroom. I am not sure what happened, looks like something fell on it. There is a hole in the middle with spidery cracks going away from it. I cant really afford to replace the whole sink at this time, it was a sink/vanity combo when I bought it, so was looking for suggestions on what to use to repair the hole, just so the sink does not leak into my cabinet. I bought some Rustoleum Leak seal Felxible rubber coating that comes in a spray can so see if I put it on underneath the sink to stop it from leaking.

Does anyone have any better ideas that are economical? I really dont care what it looks like after, just want a quick fix until I can afford another sink.

Thank you
Chris

I would go with a 2 part epoxy as a temporary repair.

Thank you so much for the reply but as I was working on it. I felt underneath it and chunks of the sink came out. SO I tried getting the marble counter top off and I cracked that in half while also taking a large wedge shaped piece out of the sink. So looks like I have to buy a new sink and counter. That is my luck though

I am not really known for handyman capabilities LOL
thank you again
Chris

A crack in your ceramic or porcelain vanity sink can bring the whole look of your bathroom down.
Follow these steps to fix the crack in bathroom sink:
1. Dry the sink entirely using a hand-held hairdryer.
2. Use the toothpick to slowly and smoothly fill in the crack using the epoxy adhesive. The toothpick allows for a solid structure to move the wet epoxy through the crack only where it is needed without spreading it along the surface of the sink.
3. Wait 24 hours for the epoxy to dry.
4. Paint the dried epoxy with appliance paint that matches the color of your plastic or porcelain sink. Let the paint dry.

how do I repair the sink. It has spidery tears or cracks if you will. They are not peeling, but do not look attractive.
