Soapstone is a wonderful carving medium for professionals and amateurs equally. The wide variety of colors inspires one to carve lovely figurines or artists to create a master piece sculpture.
It doesn’t require expensive cutting equipment, basic hand tools such as rasps and files for shaping, and sand paper for polishing is sufficient for finishing a piece.
Soapstone carving is a great educational occupation for children, and a life-long hobby for everyone.
Suppliers offer soapstone by the pound, and art shops in blocks by piece for prices.
We offer small 2″-4″ cut offs as well by the box, ( about 7-8 lb ) for beginners to practice.
