    Ive repaird so many things with the Oatey epoxy putty stick! I kast repaired a metal green patina frog candlestick. The repair can be sanded drilled or painted.


    I find it easier to work with than bondo and this clay like putty can be sculpted. It does harden in a few minutes and will dry gray needing painting.


    It's a two-part epoxy sticky-found at big box hardware stores for about $6.

    You mix press -then you can use scrape off excess (I use depleted gift card) and/or sand and paint. Cured putty is strong enough to drill through. Its a light grey putty.


    Oatey Putty safely seals/waterproofs for plumbing boat repairs.... Ive used it for exterior entry door frame wood rot repair, elliptical pedal repair, multiple arts and crafts repair of furniture, pottery- wood -ceramic- concrete statues - even a garage laundry sink with a hole ( thanks for hiding that defect with carrots -previous homeowner)


    Every home owner crafter or second hand shopper need a 2 part putty epoxy stick!


    You can find other expensive ( jb weld) and smaller 2 part epoxy sticks versions in the boat marine and wood repair sections this Oatey one is a great value.

    Consider the epoxy putty for your repair needs.
