The Double Kit contains 2 slabs of soapstone with your choice of two animal designs (Buffalo, Simple bear, detailed bear, dolphin, whale, turtle, coyote or wolf) on them, 2 different carving files (Rifflers), sandpaper, steel wool and instructions. You may mix or match the animal designs.

Excellent for beginners, projects can be completed within 1 hour to 2 hours depending on wrist strength and age. Used by many schools, scout troops and 4 different Indian museums in California. This stone carving kit makes a very fine Educational Toy.

My goal with my carving kits is to give the first time carver a project that you can succeed at and be very satisfied with the results. I've seen many short attention span kids (and adults) give up when their first carving experience was too big a project for them that's why i came up with this size, stick with it for 1 to 2 hours and I'm sure you'll be happy with the results and be more inclined to try a second carving. Take your time and good luck.

Quantity prices are available to schools and other groups.

Bulk Soapstone (6 lbs) 
Bulk Soapstone

Bulk Soapstone 

 Price: 47.50 (4 different files included)

Price: 40.00 (without files included)


($13.45 ~ Domestic Shipping & Handling)

PLEASE SEND E-MAIL TO FIND OUT ABOUT SHIPPING AND HANDLING RATES. FOR CANADA AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS.

The bulk soapstone is usually 7 to 9 pieces unless I am asked for more cuts.  For kids I can cut up to 20 pieces for the same price.  This is the soft talc quality Brazilian soapstone I import via Canada.

When learning to carve it is best to start off with small pieces and work your way up to larger pieces. Different shaped pieces of soapstone allow you to use your imagination and find what shape may be hidden inside the stone. You may also draw patterns on the stone and carve them out to your satisfaction. Smaller or larger pieces than pictured are also available just contact me via email for details.

"After carving the 4 slabs with the designs on them I feel you will be ready to try something free form with the bulk piece (or pieces) , if the free form does not work out for you you can cut your bulk piece into slabs with any saw that you may have around and draw your own designs on the slabs. Good luck to the carver." ~ Vince

EAST INDIAN SOAPSTONE BLOCK

It carves like alabaster and is harder than my regular soapstone.  Colors will vary.  Blocks measure about 5" x 3" X 3" (12.7 cm x 7.62 cm x 7.62 cm) in size and weight about 5 pounds (2.27 kilograms).  East Indian soapstone is used a lot for the base of fine trophies. 

This is a harder grade of soapstone. (Try my 6 pound (2.72 kilograms) bulk soapstone listing in my eBat Store for a softer grade of soapstone.) The East Indian Soapstone Block is excellent for slabing thin for pendants & beads. For those who have carved before you will love it.  Contact me for with any further questions about this grade of soapstone.

( Set of 8 soapstone/wood carving files)

"For the price these rifflers/files are the best rough grit carving tools you will find. All carvers of soapstone and wood that I know use them and keep a couple of sets around. I have used and sold these rifflers for more than 25 years and know you will like them. Thanks."
