What about Durham’s Rock Hard Putty. It is available at the big box stores for about $8 for a 4lb can. It is like plaster of paris where you mix it with water to a clay like consistency. It is a very light brown color, but might be tintable. I have a can that is at least 10 years old and still good.

btw: that clock looks great. The bow-ties look a lot better than if they were filled in. Putty might be faster though if you are making a lot of them.

Durham’s might be a bit rough on planer blades. It should work perfectly fine with a drum sander.
