I have used Oatey Epoxy Putty for attaching branching corals for
experiments.  It is the Epoxy putty in stick form, where Part A is
rolled around Part B that Bruce Carlson spoke about.  While it may not
be ideal for filling cores, it is easy to work with underwater or while
wet and pieces can be broken off as needed.

As someone else wrote, you need to consider the application.  If this is
for a small number of experimental pieces, the putty should be fine.  If
you need large volumes, you may want to look elsewhere.
