For this repair you will need:

To make your mortar mix add the recommend water to your premixed sand and cement. Continue mixing until you get to the right consistency.
Add a small amount of mortar mix to the pointing trowel and transfer the mixture over to your bricklaying trowel. Tap the back of your bricklaying trowel until the mixture sticks.
