I’ve been chatting recently with my sister about what one might do with 200-odd left-over roof slates, how she might engrave, decorate, and otherwise use them in a crafty capacity. Since I have a rotary hobby tool I use for some wood carving and grinding stones to use with it I suggested I’d see what you could do with it before she made the investment herself. By coincidence Jolene and I have also been looking at engraving, carving and polishing pebbles, although we’ve not made any in-roads there yet so this seemed like an ideal opportunity to lay aside the sandpaper for a while and break-out the grinding stones!
I made a few attempts, just messing more than anything, trying out different shapes and the like with limited success. What I did come away with though was this little face, nothing particularly exciting but I think it could be a start of something and with that my thoughts return to the pebbles!
