Looking for some input on what recipes have worked best for you.
- Any wood types better than others?
For example, I just sanded some ipe decking and it made a flour-like
sawdust. Is that fine sawdust from a "hard" wood like Ipe better or
worse than say coarser sawdust from oak or a softwood like pine?
Is the choice of wood really just a matter of color match (since no
grain) or are there other factors in choosing the type of sawdust?
- What types of glue? yellow vs. epoxy vs.other?
- How thick and dry do you make it?
- Any tricks to make the home-made stuff look and work more like real
wood? (similar to stuff like System3 SculptWood)
Just trying to tease out the best tricks and experience based on the
awesome collective knowledge of this group...
