Question about Crafts & Hobbies
I am not a mason, but do repairs on my own bath stone, I have had advise from a freind who is a mason, and you should only use "Bath stone pre-mix" which costs about £25-£30 per bag(20-25kg), I gotmine from Travis perkins. Alternatively, you can grind up a peice of bath stone, seive it so it is fine, then make a 4:1:1 with bathstone dust:lime:white cement. This will make a mortar that will not be rejected by the stone, and can be worked like normal mortar and also sanded if you catch it at the right moment. Be sure tho, it is a real art form to make it look really good!

1 part lime,1part lime and 2 parts kiln dry sand.. No cement. If a small repair then chesil it back about 3-5mm Or bigger build up gradually.. Keep the stone moist to key into. And if the temp is warm,keep straying water,don't let it crack. If you do you've left it to long.build if proud. Then when cured,rub it down... Bm345building@me.com

I would use epoxy and color it with ground stone dust.
