I use jewelers epoxy and
amber (or whatever color) dye. This crystal clear, 15 minute epoxy is very special in that it is designed to be buffed. Just add tint (sounds so simple huh?) to get the color you need and drop fill the hole. It has a good flow/leveling viscosity so you have to be able to level the spot while it cures. It is 15 minute cure but the dye slows it down a lot. I usually let it sit overnite before working it level. I over fill and then level it back using a sharp microscope slide followed by the usual wet sanding buffing schedule. Brand name is Epoxy 330, you can find it searching the web for jewelers epoxy.
