That's a super narrative , Kutter. The pictures help much, too. I have a job to do almost exactly like that on a Remington hammergun that had a bad chip lost right behind the upper tang. I let in a piece of walnut like you did, then re=inletted the rear of the tang into it. Now, it needs coloring. I guess I'm fortunate that I've removed all finish from the wood, and will be redoing the entire buttstock and forend. All I'll have to do is blend the two pieces into each other, then apply finish over all at the same time.

Your post will be a great help. Thanks.

The acrylic paint I happen to use is simple artist supply store stuff. Comes in a tube. By any other name I guess it'd just be called water colors.
The Earth Colors that Damascus talks about are the main ones I use,,,raw and burnt Sienna and Umber along with Black. Those will get you about any natural color or tone needed by mixing them.

Start with the lightest shade you see in the orig wood that you want to match and then build the look of the wood and grain on the repair towards the final darkest tones and grain lines.
Don't try and do the job in just a couple coats. This isn't like painting a tool shed.

Oh, I haven't even started it yet. I probably won't do anything much in the gunshop until the weather cools off some. My a/c unit died, and I've been so busy on the farm I haven't taken the time to get a new one. Fall will be here soon, and I'll do some early morning tinkering in there.

This is a gun from my own collection I purchased it at a farm sale in the early 60 s. You will be able to see that the comb nose has been repaired because of a Buba repair. This repair was my first attempt to replace missing wood but keep the old dark age finish. Looking at it now I was able to do better after a few more years had passed, it has stood the test of time and use and that is what it is all about. It was not a hard thing to do so you cant make things worse if you are careful also I am very surprised that the Epoxy has held things together all this time because it was Araldite's first market offering.
