    Filling the voids in some mesquite with dyed epoxy.

    Just mix up the epoxy and add a drop of dye. Then spackle it into the voids. I scraped and sanded it flush already and it looks pretty good. The dye doesn't seem to effect the drying time or the hardness of the epoxy. I thought I had pics of it sanded down but I'll have to take them again and post later.

    Did you coat the surface with anything to avoid glue like staining?
    I've thought about tinting the epoxy too... did it take longer to dry? when I added glitter the 5 mintue stuff it took a few hours to dry.

    Nothing on the wood other than epoxy and dye. I've got it scraped and haven't seen any staining or discoloration of the surrounding wood. It did take quite a while to dry, I ended up just leaving it overnight and it was fine to scrape the next day.
