    pratley works fine.. wait 10-15min after mixing it and then attach to rocks and make sure you put some type of pressure on rock for 10-15min too

    Pratley's Putty. If possible, use the "standard setting" white epoxy putty, and not the "quick set" type.

    Should the rocks be too big, try drilling them and use cable ties to hold them together. ;)
