Question about Home
I assume this is a new sink and you are trying to save it. There are several options depending on how much time and or money you want to put into the repair. The simplest is what you mentioned yourself. just be sure to clean the surface completely, you may want to use rubbing alcohol to be sure there is no oil or contaminates on the surface. Be sure the area is completely dry before applying the epoxy. There are several types and you will have to determine which is closest as a match for color and sheen. With that said dip a toothpick into a small drop of epoxy and then transfer it to the desired location. Keep in mind that it will more than likely be higher than the existing surface. Once it has completely dried, 48 hours for a good cure, then take a single edge razor and gently press it to the surface and push it along at a 25-35 degree angle to remove the high spot. You may need to do this several times to get the desired finish.
If you are not happy with this then you can have the whole sink refinished professionally by a number of companies. I have used Bath Crest with good success.

Tips for a great answer:
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
The "CPU" or central processing unit, otherwise known simply as "the processor," is the primary "brain" of the computer.
Processors are very finely engineered components that are not repairable.
But replacing a failed processor is an option for the owner of any model Compaq Presario desktop computer.
Just check with HP/Compaq for the correct size and speed of processor for your motherboard before purchasing a replacement.
Turn off the computer and disconnect all cables.
Remove the cover.
Lay the computer down flat.
If there is a plastic hood covering an exhaust fan, remove it by pressing in on the indicated release tabs.
Examine the processor assembly.
The processor is a square chip that is covered by a metal heat sink with fins.
A fan will often be mounted on top of the heat sink; unplug its connection to the motherboard.
Two clips usually secure the heat sink assembly to the top of the processor.
Gently press down and slightly away on the flat end of a clip to release it.
Avoid using a screwdriver to release a clip a slip could scratch the motherboard.
Release the clips and gently remove the assembly.
The heat sink should separate, leaving the processor behind in the chip holder.
Clean the bottom of the heat sink.
Use a paper towel and a dab of solvent cleaner to remove the old thermal paste.
Set the clean heat sink aside.
Lift up the lever to unlock the old processor and remove it from the pin mount.
Insert the new processor chip.
Align the pins on the processor to the "cut off corner" or dot on the pin mount.
The processor should drop into the pin holes easily.
If the processor won't drop in easily, check the pin alignment.
Once the processor is inserted correctly, pull down the lever to lock in the chip.
Apply thermal paste to the bottom of the heat sink.
Apply enough paste to cover the area of the small gray rectangle on top of the processor.
Apply the paste with a spreader made from a piece of flexible plastic.
Spread the paste evenly to a thickness of two sheets of paper.
Check the heat sink mounting alignment and lower the heat sink onto the top of the processor.
Reinstall the mounting clips.
Reattach the heat sink fan to the motherboard if necessary.
Plug in the computer and monitor and boot.
If the machine won't boot or it emits warning "beeps," unplug the power and monitor, and troubleshoot your work until the computer boots successfully.
Shut down again and replace the exhaust fan hood.
Close up the computer and reboot.
Hope this helps
