How or what can I use to reattach stones to a fireplace surround?
my fireplace is real field stone and when it was constructed there were a few spots that needed more stone and Ihave no idea how to fix it simply
Just neutral white paint, diluted 4:1 and I would use a spray bottle, a small roller & work it in with a small brush.
Of course mask off everything else & clean the smoke residue off the area right above the firebox.
If you don’t want the pinkish undertone I’m the stone to come through, then I would tint the paint a tiny bit, in whatever color direction you’re wanting.
Very Light green cancels red.
