|Sandblast or Flat Carving:
Sandblast designs are the most basic type of carving
available. Flat carved roses and other
floral designs are not preferred for upright headstones.
The outline of the design is sandblasted and the
interior is shadow carved to enhance the detail of the
design. Shadow carved designs are commonly used on
flowers, leaves, faces and any other designs that would
benefit from the added detail.
A hand etching consist of using a diamond tipped
engraving tool to draw or "etch" directly onto a
polished monument. An etching looks best when it
is done on a polished black granite monument because
this will give you the greatest contract.
Our new laser engraving process involves etching an
exact reproduction of a photograph or drawing directly
into black granite. This unique process creates
detailed, affordable, photographic quality pictures of
our loved ones.
|Sculpture / Statues:
Sculptures and granite statue carvings consists of an
image that is hand sculpted using many different
pneumatic chisels and other granite carving tools.
The quality of a hand sculpted statue will vary greatly
depending upon the individual sculptor.
