A sculpted candle holder.
My brother made this for me for Christmas. MADE IT. I was so impressed.
He carved it out of soapstone, which is a very soft stone that scratches away easily. If you have the eye or inclination to carve something yourself, soapstone is a fantastic starting place.
I want to try it!! I’ll put my 3D skills to the test. It’s been so long since I worked in real world 3D rather than digital. It’s so different I feel like I use different parts of my brain for each.
(The candle is vanilla from Bed Bath and Beyond, if you were wondering. It’s quite yummy.)
Other art I found made out of soapstone, if you’re interested:
Black Pearl Soap Stone — This site is awesome. It has all sorts of links to carving tutorials.
