Southern Stone are now selling 'Toadstool' stone carving kits.
These chisels are very sharp and will last you a lifetime.
They are made in Italy and are of the highest quality; they are known as fire-sharp carbon steel stone carving tools.
The stone is a cream limestone from Malta, which is ideal for beginners due to it being quite soft compared to other limestones. It is also very popular with those more experienced in stone carving/sculpture.
Our full set of instructions give you a step by step guide of how to make your first stone 'masterpiece'.
As our carving kits consist of the same tools you can now buy an additional set of instructions to create a gargoyle, tudor rose, squirrel, green man or an oak leaf design too, please see our separate listings.
