I’m carving my stones the traditional way, by using mallet and chisel for shaping. Soapstone is a kind of soft stone, that allows to make the detailing with rasps and files. The final surface finish achieved with standard various grits water base sand papers. Sealed and buffed with natural bee wax.
The soapstone Brazilian origin, deep green base color, with lighter green lines and clouds. One solid piece. Soapstone not require much maintenance, however when displayed attracts tiny dust particles, that can fade its shine by time. A few drops of olive oil and a soft cloth buff every other months, makes the stone fresh and new looking.
