    I have a chip in my bath, I bought a touch up stick which does blend it in abit better but the surface level is not the same. What can i use to build the chip up before re - applying the enamel touch up please ?

    You can use pretty much any 2 part epoxy resin (araldite ) take the applied paint off first - invest in a dremel : .. My old dad used to eat chips and pickled onions in the bath ;)

    you could just keep putting layers of the touch-up enamel on but it may take a while depending how deep the chip is.
