Small hole patched with Locktite marine epoxy.

Branch fell in Midwest ground hurricane last month.
Locktite is very slow and will sag ,best to to it rest if you want fill anything vertical . The rounded corned was worst case scenario .Its white you can smooth with wet hand or finger after ......30 -45 mins. Third coat epoxy only. It was 100% sealed first works fantastic in thin quantities. It's hard as heck to sand and I had shaved it some with razor blade. Third coat raw epoxy in pics.Its about to the point you would really have to search to find it. I would like to try JB weld white marine epoxy to see if it's a little thicker or faster. To keep for emergency . I could have filled with bondo or some spot putty after glass repair with my eye closed . I was going solid painless white repair .Attachment 302447Click image for larger version

The make a powdered additive for epoxy that thickens the epoxy. Let it rest a little while and it slows movement, although it may still creep.

The TRICK, from my limited experience w/ epoxy is set time; 60, 30, 15, 5 or 1-minute. Sheetrock mud/ plaster is similar, you want to fill a big hole, or ceiling hole in plaster, get the powdered fast set vs premix, and slap it in the hole fast, below the surface, then you can get close to finish and use slower sets to do final coats. BUT, NICE JOB, YOU GOT THIS :-)
