Item description for The Old Stone Rubbing Kit; Preserving Epitaphs and Artwork from Historical Gravestones & Monuments With Book(s) And Other And Brushes And Paper by Cider Mill Press...
Gravestone, monument, and brass rubbing--the process of capturing relief impressions of lettering, carvings or designs from stone or brass plates--is an ancient and beautiful art with widespread contemporary appeal. Because it produces stunning images, as well as teaching us fascinating facts about the past, the technique attracts everyone from historians and artists to schoolchildren on field trips and followers of Wicca and other New Age practices. This all-inclusive kit has everything needed to start creating beautiful rubbings: a 60-page book filled with a history of the craft and instructions; a natural-bristle wooden brush for cleaning surfaces; two large blocks of rubbing wax, masking tape, and five sheets of 24 x 36 inch high-quality cloth-like paper.
