If its leaking from the base of the spout where its attached to the body, its most likely the O rings that need replacing. The spout body could also be leaking as the metal is quite thin and can develop pin holes under the bottom face of the spout. To determine it that's the problem, turn the water on, place your hand under the spout body, you should not get any water spray, if you do (its usually a fine mist so its hard to see, but you will feel it) the spout is bad, replace it.
I'm not sure what your question is, or if you are posting information.
Plumber's putty is purchased at local home center, hardware, plumbing outlet. Container is smaller than coffee cup, and 3 times heavier.
Material is gray and thick and slightly oily and not sticky on the fingers. Clean sink opening. Apply fairly thick amount of putty completely around sink opening. About 3/16" thick. Putty should extend wide enough so sink basket sits entirely on top of putty.
Push sink basket down into putty. Tighten sink basket very firm from below. Wipe away excess putty inside sink bowl with finger, and then a paper towel or damp sponge.

The order of installation starting from the top side is the flanged drain then a bead of plumber's putty, and don't skimp on the putty. On the bottom side, first the rubber gasket then the metal washer, finally the locking ring. You must use the plumber's putty between the sink\tub surface and the flange. My mom thought the same thing. She return her drain twice before she asked me why it was leaking:) Hope this helps.
