Painting wood puddy on stained oak handrail


I had a cat take a small chunk out of an old hand rail. I filled the spot with stainable wood puddy. Sanded down, stain everything, waiting, stained the puddy spot again. Even tried different stains. Not luck, the spot just jumps out. I am thinking maybe get half dozen different colors of brown and those little paint brushes and see what I can come up with. Is this an old idea, or should I give it a shot. I would like for that one inch by one inch spot to disappear.

Sorry just not going to happen.
Despite what that label says there is no stainable wood filler. I take that back, yes it can be stain, but match, not going to happen.
Someone's going to suggest using oak saw dust with white glue, Good luck.
Posting a picture of the damage is always a good idea.

Your idea is not out of line. If you can find a Sharpie color that is close, that can work too.

Your 'paint' idea is rather a standard practice.

Pick up a box of artist oil paints---Hobby Lobby? Then start blending and painting----

A can of spray varnish or Wipe On Poly will blend the sheen.

There exists stain marker-type pens that are used in furniture repairs and such. They are highly penetrating, will build color depth, and available in several colors.

Not everyone ---My assistant finally got to become and 'artist' last winter---sure enough--I had to get him a box of oils for his van----It's really satisfying to fake in a spot and have it work.
