Dove On Granite

I continue to talk about my progress in engraving on monuments ...
Today I will introduce the pigeon which became my third training work!

Unfortunately, I did not photograph the beginning of work,


but to describe in a few words, everything is the same as I described in my previous work ...

First, draw a contour, then I mark the most important points with a corrector, work out as much as possible with a needle bunch.


Then I use an engraving machine to clean all the details...


A couple more hours of drawing, all the details and nuances, and my first pigeon is ready! (At this point, I have already made some pigeons, not training ones)


And now more about the tools:

Needle bunches

This is one of the main tools


used either for rough, initial work, or at the end to show some of the nuances.


Engraving machines

This is undoubtedly the most important tool! Used to work out all the details


This tool can be compared with a pencil or a brush, when working with paper or canvas ...


There are still a lot of tools (in the next posts I will talk about them), I just did not use them in this work, I have mastered this main pair so far)

And I have accumulated new works, a decent amount ...
So comment on what you are interested in seeing on granite, so that I know what to prepare for you, next time!

Well, that's all for today, thanks for visiting my post, I hope you enjoyed it and I look forward to your support!)
Take care of yourself and your loved ones and see you soon!
