What type of inlay materials are you thinking about useing? Copper wre, strips of shin copper or copper powdwer? You can use a clear epoxy or a good CA glue in most choices. Treeline USA has a section on powder and crushed stone on their web site. I think they offer copper and brass powders. They also have videos. This is a good how to on wire from the WCI forum.

I have some sticks I've had around for way too long and have developed long linear cracks along the length. They have interesting profiles, are structurally ok and one would make a good cane, so I was thinking of using the cracks for random metal inlays. Any thoughts on how to inlay or melt metals or other substances into the cracks? Would probably need to widen the crack, but still..
Hi Don and welcome to the forum Treeline sells a number of inlay materials including copper an brass powders. Also stone and a glow in the dark. You can mix any with CA or Epoxy.
