Hi Vince,

Actually, the soapstone is for me. I carved all the soapstone pieces you sent in the bulk package. (And I carve alabaster, too). I use the files I purchased from you for all my carving. Hope this gives you a good idea of what hardness to send.

I began carving recently, after visiting your website. Here's the Bear kit which turned out quite nice.

This piece is from the bulk soapstone I purchased from you. I like this quality of this stone.


And another piece in the bulk pack made this otter.


I really appreciate your help with this Vince.

Thank you!
