Thanks Gofor. I just tried the 5 minute epoxy with brown food coloring in it.
I panicked a little as it was setting up and removed the excess with Acetone
as recommended. It filled pretty well the first coat. I will let it set up 24 hours
and apply another coat. I would really like to sand the inlay perfectly flat with
the surface and not have any cavity in the vcarved text. I’ll see how it goes.
I don’t want the epoxy to set up so hard on the surface that sanding it
will remove the surrounding wood before the excess epoxy. Looks pretty
good so far though. I will try the coffee ground method as well, thanks.
