Stone & Cement Tools: Quikrete® Vinyl Concrete Patcher is great stuff to model with. We have tested many concrete patchers and find that this holds detail when cast with texture forms, can be thinned to fill between stones so it appears as mortar, is tough when cured, feathers easily to 1/16" of an inch and contains Portland Cement and NO Gypsum (so it won't deteriorate or require sealing). The "Patcher," the 1/2" hardware cloth (19 gauge wire) and WD40 are inexpensive. Most are found at your local building center. The "Stone Nippers" are ceramic tile nippers and you probably already have a pair in your shop.
