Have you tried Epoxy Clay on your carvings?

Epoxy clay is a 2 part epoxy that is a wonderful filler in large cracks or defects in the wood, or for times when you are on location and need an emergency fix. The clay is used in taxidermy and in other art fields. The clay I’ve been using is called “Magic Sculpt” and it gives you a 2 – 3 hour working time before it starts to harden. Once it hardens, it’s rock hard, but can still be sanded and grinded.
