    Need to reconnect a broken bone it is large enough to insert a metal rod and epoxy but what is a good filler to use for the out side something that would match the color of the bone? Maybe something sand able.

    Ditto the Apoxy. It won't be a perfect match as bones can be many shades of white to yellowish. You might want to leave the repair as is though instead of trying to paint it to match. I have an experimental coyote skull that was reconstructed with Apoxie. The sculpted repairs can be seen and actually added a bit of character.
