A fellow modeler has asked me, "Does anyone offer a glue that absorbs stain?"

Would anyone here know?

Not that I'm aware of. I've always had to stain items first, then glue together.

Some glues claim to absorb stains, but even different parts of the same tree absorb stain differently. That's the real problem, consistent coloring!

Elmer's has Carpenter's Wood Glue Max that it says is stainable. It has wood fibers, which I guess are supposed to absorb stain.
I've tried it, the fibers make it thick and it doesn't brush out easily on small edges and the glue itself doesn't stain.
