Someone talent posted a thread up where they had carved a sign, and then filled in the lettering with epoxy. Does anyone have a link to that?

TIA

Yeah close, I remembered that the one I saw, they'd taken quite a few WIP pictures of pouring the epoxy.

Tiranti are a good source for resin(polyester and epoxy) they have pigments and stone and metal powders too. If the epoxy gives off heat as it cures it will cause air in the wood to expand ,giving rise to bubbles. I got good results with epoxy warming the wood first - this made the resin flow out better and speeds up curing too.
Experiment First!
