I too have used epoxy for many years to fill small hold in stone
surfaces. Don’t expect it to work on anything over a mm or so though.
On those larger holes, use Opticon which is a resin.
When polishing surfaces with small pits/holes filled with epoxy, I
usually go though my normal routine of working up to 50K diamond and
then use my normal oxide. If the epoxy doesn’t look good at that
point, I use ZAM to finish things off. Just keep in mind, the epoxy
will probably undercut slightly no matter what you do.
