yes I have sculpted some small pieces of marble and would love to do a large piece... maybe one day just dont' have the funds..
But love Alabaster,, it all good though and I love using those dealers they are helpful and keep you inspired.. if your just starting to carve I would recomemd a point chiesel, and a 3 teeth chisel.. most of the work is done with the files.. takes a lot of those and tons of sand paper.. is this going to be your first piece?

Roxanne- Unfortunatly no i have never sculpted any marble or stone http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif i always thought it would be too hard to do until now.the closest i have came to sculpting was this really hard green clay stuff.

Since it's your first time doing marble ,, I would like to ask if you have sculpted any other type of stone?

I would suggest starting with a softer stone then move to marble it's very hard..
Meaning it's a hard grade of stone. Can really make your arm sore..

Marble runs to 1.00 a pound an up .. I just want to do 100 lbs or more most of the time.. "big dreams" on my part.
I actually fell into sculpting by accident and never thought I would be able to do it.. but it's a love now.. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

that's a good soft medium to start with.. some times people jump right into marble and get discourage when they realize how hard it is.. that's why I was suggestion you start with softer stones and work your way to marble.. did you start yet?

I've always received good service and supplies from these folks: http://www.sculpt.com/

Did you try out marble sculpting? If so, how did it go?
