A contract is under discussion to carve, etch, what-have-you, a five
letter word into about 80 small wave rounded beach pebbles roughly as
big as a golf ball but flatter.
I am thinking that sandblasting is the way to go but I have not done
this before. I believe the letters are cut out of a rubber mat which
is then laid over the stone. But what type of rubber? How thick?
Three of the letters have “enclosed” areas, namely R, A, and D. How
is that handled? What sort of grit should I use? Presumably silicon
carbide? What mesh size?
These questions and other issues may be too detailed (and take too
much writing) to answer here on the open Orchid list. But if anyone
has experience in sandblasting into small stones and wouldn’t mind
some brain picking by telephone, I’d be grateful of a private email
with your contact
Cheers & thanks
