epoxy filler

>I'm turning a burl with a lot of voids which, for the specific purpose at hand, need to be filled.

What epoxy filler does anyone recommend? Bear in mind, these are not small checks but rather largish voids and checks.

When I say large, some are big enough to insert a finger to the second joint. Filling them with pigmented epoxy is my plan and will be precisely what I want as far as appearance goes, I just am not sure which epoxy is best for this sort of thing.

also, what sort of pigment does one use and how much? Or is that one of those "test and see" questions?

Many thanks

George
