I am working on some pieces of art work that I have burned electronically in 1/2 plywood using a Lichtenburg / fractal burning transformer. I would like to inlay colored epoxy resin into the burn patterns… the problem I am running into is the resin is soaking into the surface of the plywood and as I sand it to remove the excess (not in the cracks) I am sanding through the top layer of the plywood… I am trying CA glue with turquoise inlay and having the same issue. Would applying a sanding sealer, finish wax, (or other product???) to the surface of the plywood fill the pores and not allow the epoxy and/or glue to soak through the top layer, thus, making it easier to sand the excess away?

Anyone have experience with this or something similar?
