We went on a course last week to learn how to engrave lettering on marble with hammers and chisels. Mine is shown above.
It certainly isn’t easy; the teacher said it took him three years just practising getting the angle of the chisel right. There is a whole technique for holding chisels. As you can see, I struggled to even create a straight line.
I wouldn’t mind doing more, one can only improve.
