I have just begun learning to do inlays in wood. I ordered some CA glue and some powdered turquoise. The glue sets so fast, I couldn’t mix it with the powdered material. So I sifted the powder into a crevice and dotted the glue on top. It ran everywhere before settling into the powder, making quite a mess. I am working with walking sticks, so the rounded surface is working against me. I managed to sand off the excess but felt like I was wasting a lot of powder and glue.
Anyone have ideas on how I can make more of a paste to apply in small crevices? I have read about a thicker CA glue but seems like that would make matters worse.
Thanks for any input!
