tip,Mixing glue with paint to match plane

I have been using elmers probond polyurethane glue to repair breaks in my gws planes, it is a ugly off yellow color when it dry's, I thought why not mix some of the water based paint I use to paint my planes to match the paint so I mixed up some in a small plastic container and let it dry, turned out great, it penetrated the glue really well, I only used about 2 drops of paint and about 2 drops of water and mixed it well, now I don't have to paint the glue after its dry. I guess since the paint is water based like the glue is mixed with water it really colored the glue, I bent and tried to break the glue and it doesn't seem to be any less weaker at all and now its colored all the way thru so if you want to trim it the inside will be the same color as the out side and should be no touch up
