Re: I carved a hand in stone.

Well done! It's beautiful! Will you polish it or leave it like this? What kind of stone is it? Thanks for sharing and welcome to WetCanvas!

Re: I carved a hand in stone.

Thank you ArtsyLynda,
I probably going to leave like this, it's a limestone from York in the UK. The stone is full of seashells and veins, I have since worked in details and tried to polish it, but it turns all yellowing and shows the seashells and veins. this stone is mainly used in churches and some old buildings.
I have done this just to get some practice, I recently started doing human body parts, before I move to carving a full human figure. I am still in the process of understanding how stone carving works and also the anatomy of the human body. I can't find any good resources online to learn the process so I just thought this is the way to go.

Re: I carved a hand in stone.

Amazon has some books on carving stone. https://www.amazon.com/Sculpting-Sto.../dp/0713676582 If you go to that page, it covers the book by Valentine and suggests similar books at the bottom of the page.

Your stone sounds beautiful! I can see why you don't want to sand it.

There may be videos online too. Do a search for them. Glad I could help!

Nice work! I like the idea of keeping it natural, looking forward to seeing more coming from you.
