Making a sculpture 2

For this carving I chose a piece of serpentine, weight 45 kg..

I could see that it would fit the shape of the carving I had in mind.

 

The saw, chisel, hammer, mallet and rasp are the prime tools of sculpture.

 

Leave enough stone to allow for sanding to the finished shape.

Keep in mind that sanding is also a form of carving and shaping.

 

Wet sanding is done until all the file marks are removed.

File marks show as white lines on your green stone.

 

The stone is highly polished and placed on a base.
