I’ve recently by practicing engraving various depictions on stones with plans for a more extensive engraving project planned.
If you can’t tell, I have an affinity for ancient Egyptian culture and astronomy choosing to carve out ancient hieroglyphs and star constellations – Orion and the twelve signs of the zodiac. The larger black stones are coated with a water-proof sealant meant to protect the ink and giving the stones a remarkable sheen that came out wonderful! The smaller colored and black stones have no coating since I used a paint-pen which dries quicker and won’t smudge despite handling.
