Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryY Worked perfectly!
I bought a flip house and the shower arm flange wasn't big enough to cover the cut out for the shower arm. Originally, I was going to find and install a larger flange but decided to give this product a try.
The kit comes with a "light" and "dark" material along with a putty knife and plastic bag to mix colors. For my repair I used the "light' and filled in the hole smoothing it over flush with the tile.
From the photos you can see the hole is covered. Up close you can tell it was patched but the casual observer probably wouldn't notice it. The light color matched well enough that the repair blends and even as the one who fixed it my eye isn't drawn to it. So mission accomplished!
Definitely cheaper than replacing the tile and less cheesy than getting an over sized flange to cover it up.
I did this patch a month prior to this review and so far it still looks great. I didn't seal it or anything and the moisture of the shower hasn't caused any issues.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki Beautiful Job for LIGHT colors only
This is a very nice product and the end results are beautiful but it is only for lighter colors. It does come with a tub of 'light' and a tub of 'dark' so that you can mix to get the appropriate color but the dark is still just 'light'. Unfortuneately, my average tiles are too dark for this kit.
However, it is easy to use and does a fantastic job. Just follow the directions exactly as they are printed on the box. It is quick and easy and not at all messy so I do recommend it if you have a lighter color than I do. Goes on easy, you don't need much. Takes only minutes. Excess wipes off quickly and easily too! This is a very nice kit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TE great for small dings, not so great for larger holes
This product was extremely easy to use. just mix the two colors to your desired color and apply. Although, truly your color options are light and lighter.
For very small and shallow holes, this stuff is great. it goes on fast and dries pretty quickly.
For larger holes, measuring about .5 inches or larger in diameter, it does less of a good job.
I found it difficult to really smooth out as it kept coming up as i tried to flatten it.
It also dries pretty rough. it's hard to make a smooth covering. That's why for small holes it's great, you don't notice it so much. but for larger holes, it kind of stands out from the rest of the polished floor.
Also, I noticed that after it dries it seems to have shrunk a little, so i'm going to go back and apply a second coat to see if it fills in a bit. Basically, there are small indentions where i filled it in. so i'm hoping that a second coat will raise it back to level with the rest of the tile.
An installation tip, i found that if i added a drop or so of water to the mix, it was easier to work with. It dries pretty fast. so having some water out of the cleaning rag helped.
bottom line, it's great because it's so easy to use, but really best for small holes that you might not even notice anyway. but still useful so that those holes don't chip and get bigger.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RickMo Too Light
This product has both "dark" and "light" colors. On our beige travertine tile, even the "dark" appears blazing white. After filling in a crack with "dark" it became an eyesore. This product would have been substantially better if "dark" was at least several shades darker for our application. Even better if it came with some tints for browns and yellows, which our tile also has.
It does seal cracks and pits pretty well, and I found it works best to apply in small amounts wiping over the surface with a minimally damp paper towel. The slight extra moisture thins the product enough to let it penetrate even tiny hairline cracks and pits. Dries rock solid.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by stp Easy to use but no option for anything but bright white
Like other reviews this gives you the choice of light or lighter no option for dark or even creamy color. There was more shrinkage than I expected but 3 coats fixed that. Plenty of product included for just a patch kit. You could build a whole 6x6 tile with this stuff.

I know custom building products makes some good items, so I was interested in giving this repair kit a try on my new travertine bathroom tiles. Unfortunately when the glass door guys came to do the door installation, I'm pretty sure one of them dropped a tool or something on the tile and caused a minor crack. I'm happy to say that this repair kit made quick work of the problem!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by southernwolverine Very easy to use
I used this on my travertine tile in my den. It comes with to containers on light and one dark about the size of plumbers putty containers. The light was very light and the dark I would have called light myself. The purpose being to mix the two until you get your shade. I just used dark container, went on easy with included putty knife. If you have a lot to do I would advise you to do small areas and then sponge over. I did all I needed to do and had to use scrbby pad to get off of tile surface. Seems to be pretty good fix for pits, holes and cracks. Much easier than replacing tile, if I had it to do over I would not buy travertine tile.
