I thought it would be good to show you how I started the other side of this stone carving before showing you the finished version. I saw a braid and a spiral and started to carve it out here in this picture as you can see. I really love this type of stone which is pyrophillite. It is my favorite to carve right now. I know I’ve mentioned this before but really my fav! This braid was tricky for me to carve, so I had to focus on the unders and overs to make sure it worked visually.
Coming up next is the finished version of this side of my stone sculpture.
I am hoping to show everyone on my blog how I see the images in the rough rocks and then how I pull them out so that you can see how I carve stone.
