Sandcarving is clean, easy, and efficient. Unique effects, attainable only through sandcarving, add elegance and value, making every carved substrate stand out among the rest. Techniques such as color-filling, stage carving, and shading allow for images and textures that are sure to turn heads.
Also, if a customer would like to stage carve, achieving multiple depths, you can easily do it with sandcarving-multiple depths are not feasible with alternative methods. Laser engraving and diamond cutting can ‘chip’ the edges when etching brittle substrates.
