Fill in the blanks

I got some soapstone from my friend A to make seal blanks from -- the blanks that I have contain small crystals that my carving tool has too much trouble with, and she had a stock of soapstone available. So yesterday I bought a saw with a small blade and a collection of sanding papers -- and got to work.

So far, soapstone is a delight to work with -- but I haven't started carving the seals themselves yet. I'm pretty confident that I will manage -- these are softer than the 'official' blanks I have.
