I ran out of paper one day.

Found out sandstone is hard on pen tips.

LOL Wyobud Yep, it sure is hard on pens. I have experimented working on sandstone myself. We had a lot of it in Texas, and the house I grew up in was made from sandstone. I believe some of my drawings and carvings are still on the house. At least the last time I visited. Try carving the stone and then using a brush to add the ink. I found that works nicely.

You know, you might just start a new craze with this:D See if you can sell it. I have a friend that paints on shale, and his work goes fast.
