This is vitrified porcelain -

I am looking for some input on how others would go about fixing the crack
in this sink. See attached picture:

The sink will be replaced by years end - so a repair that will last ~1 year
is sufficient -

Kintsugi is a great place to draw inspiration. There are many kits online, but most are just epoxies with a “gold dust”. There are several how-to videos. Fewer use the older lacquer techniques, so it it a little harder to find good detailed supplies and references. I looked into all this a few years back,the epoxy method is straight forward. I am more curious about the traditional lacquer methods since doing some raku pottery. Since then I think the idea is a little more popular with kintsugi being important in an episode of Man in the High Castle.
