Filling faucet holes in clawfoot

Just picked up a used clawfoot tub, I originally thought the faucet wasn't attached to the inside of the tub, but it is. Is there a possible way to fill the holes so I can use a wall mount?

You could use the hole cover for the extra hole in sink decks when a spray hose is not installed.

Just an example: Amazon.com: Opella 90150.20 Kitchen Sink Hole Cover, Almond: Home Improvement Google "hole cover" "kitchen sink" for more.

I would prefer a way to make it look like the rest of the tub, but it is an option.

Filling faucet holes in clawfoot

Hi 1sthouseSLC,
I have the same issue with my old tub. Did you find a solution that was satisfactory? At present I am thinking that the best product to use would be an epoxy putty.
Thanks,
Ben

I never did get a chance to try, plans changed so we sold the tub. If you back the holes with something, sheet metal maybe, I would think the epoxy putty would work fine. Good luck!

Thanks 1sthouseSLC,
I have backed up the holes with Aluminum and will try the epoxy putty.
