Minimalist cat sculpture recently finished light green soapstone carving. The light green soapstone has a flake-like pattern and silver glitters that are very spectacular in daylight. It’s a Brazilian-origin carving stone from a certified supplier, inspected for asbestos and harmful materials. It’s a traditionally hand-carved minimalist cat sculpture, shaped with mallet and chisels, detailed with rasps and files. Polished submerged in water with various grits of sandpapers up to 2000 grit smoothness and shine. Sealed and buffed with natural nontoxic bee wax.

Soapstone is a metamorphic rock found in many places on earth in different colors and a bit different in hardness too. It’s a 2-3 on the stone hardness scale of 1-10, which means it’s relatively easy to carve with basic hand tools. Can’t say the same about the polishing. It’s a very time-consuming process that starts with 100 grit and doubling the fines of the sandpaper and sometimes takes longer than the carving itself.
