Soap Stoned

The other day I came into work and my dad (I work with my family) had left some chunks of soapstone on my work bench, he had drilled some holes in it and was thinking I might be able to do something with it. I started playing around with it, seeing what I could do and I ended up LOVING the way they came out! Once I put a mega thick coat of finish/sealant on top, the colors really popped! I'm so stoked on these lil babies. They're kinda delicate and pretty temperamental to work with but I realized that you gotta just let the stone be what it wants to be, so hippie of me, but really, it does what it wants, where it cracks, breaks, sands, carves, all of it, you can't force it. I think I found another a new obsession.
