NEW Marble Finishing Techniques

April 25 - April 26

| Register: $395

The last 10% of a stone sculpture can elevate the piece to greatness, or ruin it.  Learning how to finish properly is its own art, and was historically the task of a specialized expert in marble workshops.  Unfortunately, in today’s fast-paced world it is often overlooked or rushed, and classes sometimes don’t get around to covering it thoroughly.  This workshop is designed to do just that: all aspects of finishing a marble sculpture will be covered, including “clean up” chiseling, scraping, using abrasive stones, steel and diamond rasps, sandpaper, loose abrasives, antiquing, and polishing (both manual and mechanical).  The use of sealers, waxes and stains will also be discussed. Participants are required to bring a small marble sculpture ready to be finished. (Intermediate-Advanced)
