Simplest way to fillin chips in Bakelite. Iuse a 5 min 2 part epoxy and add cement dyes or basket dyes or any dyes you can find at craft or ceramic hobby stores that claim to work in water based acrylic paints or water it self probably even the old "rit"dyes for laundry etc.will work.To get the gray trya tiny tiny bit of white (called titanium dioxide which only means the base of all white paints) and a tiny bit of black . Experiment first on a piece of glass don't worry if its too shiny as long as the value of the color is correct.You can dull up or shine up your fill and level it using the "Micro Surface "pads. Hope I've helped.
