Letters and Stone

I'm part of a group that meets every Wednesday for writing letters and calligraphy.
One member is a stone engraver, Sten & Gravyr Hans Nilsson HB, and by using his equipment for sand blasting on stone we put our letters on stones.

1. Decide/design what you want to write
2. Draw your design to a rubber cloth
3. Cut out your design - as a stencil
4. Paste the rubber stencil on your stone
5. Sand blasting
6. Remove the rubber stencil
