Making a sculpture
Before carving, I make a small clay sculpture.
I chose a white alabaster stone.
White alabaster is a beautiful, almost etheric material and easy to carve.
A saw, chisel and wooden mallet are used to carve the stone in a rough shape.
A sandbag is necessary to prevent breakage of the stone.
After sanding and polishing you can apply a wax.
Now the alabaster has a milky transluscence.
