These high quality metal powders are ideal for creating stunning inlays in timber. Carved shapes, patterns or lettering can be filled with metal inlay to customise any workpiece. Turned items can easily be decorated with distinct lines or spirals cut into the surface. Defects in timber such as knots, splits, and insect holes can also be filled to create works of art from timber which would otherwise be wasted.


Cyanoacrylate (Super Glue)

• CA is ideal for filling small areas less than ¼” (6mm) thick
• Fill the area with metal powder then soak with thin or wicking grade CA
• Leave the metal inlay raised slightly to allow for sanding
• Allow to set for at least a few hours
• Large areas should have the edges dovetailed (undercut)
• Prevent staining from CA by sealing the timber with wax or sanding sealer

Epoxy Resin

• Epoxy resin is ideal for filling larger areas
• Use a slow setting epoxy resin (15 or 30 minute formula)
• Mix epoxy resin and metal powder at a 1:1 ratio by volume
• Press the metal inlay into the area to be filled ensuring that there are no air gaps.
• Leave the metal inlay raised slightly to allow for sanding
• Allow to set for at least 12 hours

Sanding & Finishing

• Cut or sand any excess metal inlay until level with the surface
• For a high shine work through the grits of abrasive up to 4000
• Seal and protect the metal inlay with a wax, oil or lacquer
