Default How to fill this hole in travertine?

Have a client that wants me to repair some damage to the travertine tile in her bathroom. There’s some minor surface scratching & one large chipped area thats about 1.5” long.

What should I use to fill the hole before blending the finish... Bondo?

Wonder if some unsanded grout in a close color would work?

Got any bit of Italian plaster around? Tint it up. Maybe some gel from Golden Paints?

That was actually my first thought (cuz I do have a batch leftover that I think would match that base ground almost perfectly)....but being a bathroom n floor tile do u think that’d be sound without some type of sealer over it?

I imagine waxing could get the sheen level consistent but I worry about longevity with cleanings?...whatcha think?

Thanx for sharing that...I didn’t even think to look!

It seems to be similar to a dry quick lime plaster ...similar to what lynn recommended, looks like I should pick a tile up from HD n test that out to see how it holds up in wet environment
