Sculpwood - the best filler.
I use this stuff all the time. It's the strongest filler out there. It's just like wood when it dries. You can shape it and even paint
it.

Remember to use gloves when mixing it. It's really hard to get it off your fingers.

Sculpt wood
Very easy to work with when repairing carving errors- divots, gaps etc. Can be used to build up an area as in the case of attaching wings to the body of a bird presented in flight. Holds acrylic paint well. Does not easily lend itself to pyrography.

I love this product line
We have some exposed wood beams (circa 1972) in our carport that extend out into the elements here in Phoenix, Arizona. They badly needed some restoration as the many coats of paint were about the only thing helping them look still somewhat intact. When I started chipping away at the rotted wood, I was horrified to find out just how much rot there was. I found this product via a Google search and bought some at Rockler. It is a great product line; does what it says. We had a fantastic result! See pics. I highly recommend.
Rotted wood all fixed. I love this product.

Easy to use . Gives plenty of time to mold before hardening .
This was my first time using the scuptabke putty and it was great. Easy to mold .
Ornate table leg had a piece broken off and was able to mold the detail into my wood piece easily.

Fills and rebuikds
I bought the small kit yesterday to build up worn areas on my 1917 carousel horse, and I couldn't be more pleased with the end results. It was easy to work with and had no smell (safe to use indoors.

Things to bear in mind. It may take a few tries to get it to 'stick'. Patience and give it a longer thinning 'footprint' for better results.
It was still semi malleable 4 hours later -but that allowed a bit of fine tuning. I have one more piece I want to build with it, but I'm probably going to create a core of real wood glued and set before hand for strength and stability.

I used the product while replacing an entry door lock and deadbolt with several large areas to fill. Later when set, it worked beautifully, drilling chiseling, sanding and even taping. Also it accept paint as though it was the primer.

Great for filling in missing wood.
I used this to repair wood that was rotted and damaged by water. The only cautions I would have is to first of all use their wood sealer before you use this product and secondly make sure your remaining wood is thoroughly dry before applying this product or else your rot will continue to spread out to nearby wood and cause your plug to fallout.

This is the BEST!
I had tried brands in home stores, but none of them were as pliable, easily mixed and easily shaped as this was. I had to repair the entire bottom of a baluster on my porch rail and was able to sculpt it perfectly. You should definitely use the rot stopper first before applying this. This stuff took paint like a champ - only needed one coat. I would rate it six stars if I could.

Have used this on painted and stained projects with great success. The only comment is to make sure you prime it well before your top coat to avoid a chance of seeing an outline where the product is exposed. Stain takes okay to this but gel is better for obvious reasons.

Can this be used to fill a crack in wood that is going to be put on a lathe and turned?
Joseph T on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, be sure that the crack is filled completely. It is very important if you are turning this project. Be sure and let it fully cure and I even let it set another day. It works great, sands smooth and stays put.
Can this product be put into a mold? I.E., can it be placed into a shallow shaped mold and then popped out after it hardens?
Sharon L on Feb 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Have not used in a mold but believe that it can be used in such a fashion if mold is non porous such as plastic or metal. I believe I would shape the sculpwood in the mold but take it out before it hardens completely and rest on a different surface. Hopefully that would prevent the molded piece from damage in the removal process. Repairing the molded piece when material is still somewhat malleable would be much easier.
Plan to do a wooden picture frame and need to use a substance that will adhere to wood and also ceramic broken pieces. Will this work? Or does anyone have any suggestions?
CHRISTINA M on Jul 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think it will work I have used it on a lot of things and has held great.
But I think just a 2 part epoxy would do the job
Unless your going for a different look
what is the cure time,how soon can it be carved,or sanded?
wilton f on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The directions give the setting time as 4 hours, and I suppose that is a good time. However, I'm more inclined to let glues and epoxies set over-night. As an epoxy, so it generates heat in the setting process, and the heat probably helps it set faster. All that said, 4 hours is probably a workable time. I just believe in taking more time than that.

I used Sculpwood to repair areas in a very OLD dresser that was donated to a disabled friend. The repairs were to the veneer where the glue had let go and the veneer was lifting away. Neither I nor my friend had the funds or time to remove and replace all of it. I was very impressed with the way this product soaked into all surrounding wood almost on contact so that it became not only a smoothing filler, but also a glue to close and hold the damaged veneer edges down to the wood.

After letting it set a while, I applied two coats of primer toned to the final color, then painted it a rich black.

BTW, Sculpwood epoxy is a two-part product, as are all epoxies. Both parts are putty compounds in small jars. You mix it by kneading it with safety-clad hands; nitrile painter's gloves in my case.
can you rout the epoxied section?
Victor S on Nov 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: never tried but I think it is hard enough after curing. I'd check with Mfg.
will this adhere to painted metal?
Larry L on Sep 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not likely. The purpose of this epoxy compound is wood repair. I used it for antique barrister shelves and it worked very well. I haven't tried it on metal, but it is oily, which tells me as an engineer that it will not adhere well to a non-porous surface well, especially if the surface is painted.
Is it possible to tint or change the color at all?
Melanie H on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I never tried tinting it because it dries white. I sanded it smooth and then painted it. Worked beautifully!
I have old handles made from dark horn ( ox? ) that have one section missing, can this be stained to match, and if so, what do I need and how do I go about it? The section is only about an inch long and 1/8 inch thick. I'd appreciate any assistance.
Jose B on Jan 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have used this product many times and it worked great. I only painted the finished product. I never stained after using it.
How long do I have to wait before reapplying Sculpwood putty to fill some small voids in the initial application?
John L on Aug 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The warmer it is the quicker the scope would will set up and then it is the optimum time to add more scope would to the locations that you want to fill-in.
Can you screw into it to hold ?
David L on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: First, I would want to know how you are using Sculpwood Moldable Epoxy Putty. If this is just a surface application filling a small void with no surrounding surfaces to support it, I would be a bit careful. If you can make sure that complete contact is made with a CLEAN surface, you may be able to discount surrounding support. This is more like a molding clay and not a low viscosity product that sticks un-mercifully to anything it touches. It is not like an auto body epoxy filler, so don't try to work it around on the surface once contact is made. Press it in place and then leave it alone while it sets up.

Rockler does carry Sculpwood paste. It appears to be less viscous.

You might want to lobby Rockler to have them get Minwax HIGH PERFORMANCE WOOD FILLER in stock. I really like it, but haven't been able to find it here. Its viscosity is somewhere between epoxy glue and Sculpwood. (Don't confuse it with Minwax's regular wood filler. The two are not the same.)

If those limitations will not pose a problem, I would give an unqualified "yes" to your question. If they will pose a problem, I would suggest that you look another direction

will epoxy adhere to fiberglass?
tom c on Feb 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Fiberglass is a combination of flexible synthetic cloth (fiberglass or kevlar) and 2 part epoxy. Normal adhesion rules apply; if you're talking cured fiberglass, like a boat or car fender, roughen the surface with rasp or sandpaper to give it something to adhere too. I would not trust applying 2-part epoxy to a polished smooth surface or one where you have not removed any wax or silicone coating.
