In a Curriculum Kit
Your Soapstone Carving Kit will arrive precut to the basic shape of the animal, but with a lot of additional shaping and detail to be done by the student. Your child will work with a small file, sandpaper, and water to shape and smooth the surfaces of the soapstone.
The process first involves wetting the stone repeatedly and working with the file to complete the shaping of the animal. The work is fairly detailed around some parts of the animal, which is why this kit is recommended for ages eight and older. Once your child has finished shaping the animal, they will use two grits of wet sandpaper to smooth the entire surface of the figure. Finally, they will warm the stone with a hair dryer and apply wax to the entire surface, and buff it with a clean cloth.
Complete instructions are included in your kit.
