Such a thrill: a very nice unexpected SALE that effectively pays for the stone carving tools I purchased this year. Now I can buy some more of course :-)
Some more work: starting to polish selected sections… and then there is the new digital foil, of course!
Doing a bit of freehand “drawing” in stone. Started with the chisel, but this is hard, hard stuff! So got out the power tool of choice: a “Eurotool Flexible shaft machine” which takes all the usual 1/8″ bits. I have to change a few things, spend many hours refining & finishing, and expect to practice some polishing technique on this one.
Oh, and while I am at it, let me foil it:
After carelessly tearing my recent cat drawing, right through my favorite white cat, I decided to attempt a replacement cat! Above are the foils from the first draft, they may be more appealing than the original drawing at this point, but that is improving…
