Introduction: Carving a Patterned Stone
This project is actually pretty simple. There are just a few steps but the result is wonderful.
- rotary carving tool
- clear varnish
Step 1: Design
The basic design of the stone is different levels with waves/small steps on them.
Step 2: Carving Basic Shape
For the rough shape I used the disc bit and the big cylindric one. I carved everything one level down except the step I wanted to create. For the overlapping part in the middle I first carved with the ball shaped bits and cleaned all edges with the rod bits.
Step 3: Carving Detail
For the first level I went with a leaf design. With the cylindric bits I made a middle line and created the edges. The following steps are pretty much the same. The last level is a little bit more difficult but with time and small bits it's no problem.
Step 4: Finishing
I used some clear varnish to give the stone a beautiful shine. And it's done. Thanks for reading!
