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.
Here are some sculptures that were made using epoxy clay.

Here is a recent carving that had some soft spots on the arm and shoulder. So it was a perfect circumstance for epoxy clay.
With a little epoxy clay and water and a screwdriver, the clay is easily textured and formed to blend in with the rest of the fur texture. Yes, that’s right, you use water to smooth out the clay.
Then, this will be painted to blend in with the rest of he wood.
Try it out! I think you’ll be very satisfied with it’s results. Click this link below to check it out on Amazon.com.

Thanks for visiting this post!
Good to know.Thanks, Kris.
Im going to try it,but I have found using paintable calking the stuff around windows? works best. It is soft but adhesive too. This way when my projects go through the seasons the crack can expand and contract and the crack does not take off again. I have projects 8 years out and the crack has not moved. The projects I used hard glue like gorilla glue the cracks took off.
