Looking at doing a project that requires lots of filling in of small screw holes and making them smooth so that they are not noticeable.
I guess it would depend on what maternal your screws are in. The micro balloons I use are made by Prather Products and can be mixed with any epoxy or resin. The micro balloons/resin mix is harder than balsa so it works best as filler when you are filling balsa that has glass cloth on it or coated with resin or epoxy. The Blue Angel was fiber glassed with resin so the micro balloons were mixed with resin.
