5 minute epoxy is clear and is perfect for this application. i use it quite often in my work.
I learned the technique from Sam Maloof several years ago before he passed away. It is a variation on the time honored technique of mixing varnish with sawdust. In his opinion, 5 minute epoxy was fast and the filler stayed put.
For those unfamiliar with Sam's work, he is considered one of the 20th century's foremost furniture designers with pieces in the White House and every major museum's collection. It was an honor to pick up this tip from the master.
