This minimalist style deep green soapstone mini bear is a brand new original carving by Gaby. It’s a thoughtful gift idea for desktop or shelf display, that you can personalize by adding name or a short message to the belly by carving or engraving free of charge. Carved with traditional hand tools, only one of this style made. Polished with standard water base sand papers to a smooth and shiny finish. Sealed and buffed with natural, non toxic bee wax.
Bears are the best sellers in my shop, over 160 sold. Custom size from 2″ to 2′ carving always welcome.
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.
