I located the Fitz and Floyd Santa pitcher at a fave vintage mall for a first-rate price q4, because of a small chip inside the handle. If the pitcher have been in ideal situation, there an additional $50 or extra brought to the price tag.
As the chip turned into on the returned of the pitcher, it wasn’t extraordinarily visible however I desired to camouflage it so it’d blend and be much less great. I used a favourite trick from my retails days for an smooth repair and camouflage, with permanent colored markers and a few clear nail polish.

Color over the naked chip with a permanent markers, blending and shading to match the porcelain painted end. Use a mild hand at the beginning, you may make it darker as needed.
After touching up the color along with your markers, paint numerous layers of clean nail polish over to seal it until it has a smooth finish. I implemented 6 coats of clean polish, feathering it out on pinnacle of the newly painted ‘chip’, permitting the polish to dry between coats.
Not a perfect in shape however close sufficient to blend with the inexperienced sun shades of the leaf. Unless it turned into talked about, whooooo could recognize this pitcher had a chip now? 😉
