Stone Sculpture

If anyone could begin to learn stone carving?

Maybe it's just me, but it seems to be little people even that are still interested in stone carving, making it very difficult to get any information about. I would like learn to make stone carvings and sculptures, but I have no idea where to start.

Your local stonemason (usually a cemetery - headstones, etc.), I did and they were very helpful, they suggested techniques and equipment and the best stone to be used for projects and different effects. You can get a few pieces of soapstone and practice on these - soapstone is so sweet, you can almost cut with a knife, white alabaster, limestone (nice and cheap) or get a block of cement blocks and / practical about it. To start carving stone, you'll need basic safety kit - goggles (bits tend to ping off), the mask (you do not breathe dust stone) and gloves. Then, a few simple tools - scissors, needle, etc. surforms If you are in the UK you can get from a company Tiranti called, if in the states Montoya Sculpture & Supply is similar. Both have websites and catalogs even after if I the source of your own stone (cheaper).
