Bluestone family crest completed

bluestone coat of arms with two falcons. Coat of Arms, coat of arms, relief with crest/coat of arms, family crests

The bluestone coat of arms on which I recently shared a post has now been completed. I've carved it out of a piece of Belgian bluestone (arduin) of 41 x 66 x 16 cms. After the last post that I shared about it, I've been busy for a long time with making everything sharper and sanding all the details, in order to remove all false dents. And all the small tips needed to be made sharper, the frame had to be finished and, of course, the text had to be carved and painted.

The relief depth is eight centimeters; it will be put into the wall for ten centimeters . There is a text underneath it: Me Restauravit MMXIX, or 'I've been restored in 2019', and that of course refers to the building in which this coat of arms stone will be installed soon.

Below in a gallery is again a summary of the process of making this coat of arms relief. Click on a picture for the enlarged view.
