Any one know of a decorative "filler" to fill some router letters?

I'm making a hall table with a back piece that has a name engraved. I was wondering if there are some decorative fillers i could use?

I saw some brass filings that can be mixed with epoxy? Anyone used it before?

(Inlace Products) I got mine from Turtle Feathers. Used it on some Key Fobs I made for Christmas presents.

Thank you Dave. I see they have brass granules. How does CA glue hold up in wood?
CA glue bonds to wood very well. It does degrade over time, as in decades.

Woodturners use CA glue to fill in cracks, we call this "stabilizing the wood".

At my local wood turning club, one of the members was showing a bowl, which he called a $10 bowl, because he used about $10 of CA glue to fill cracks and voids. :laughing:

Different viscosity of CA glues available, thin, medium, thick and gel. For filling cracks the thin and medium work well.

For filling voids you want the thick or gel.

Get the accelerator if you want the CA glue to set even faster.

Inlace, as has been suggested, crushed iron pyrite, almost any crushed stone, or you can color two part epoxy with artist's acrylic paint.
If you are planning just one small project, Inlace would be the best bet. As note, it is spendy. though.
