The decoration of monuments in Minsk
Burying a loved one, his family will want to put on the grave monument, at the sight of which would be not only to learn the initials and the years of the life of the deceased, but also to see his photo. At the same time many wish to engrave on the monument to the words of his sorrow or one, two sentences describing the deceased. The order is executed with the help of professional engraving on the stone image and text, which are called the decoration of the monument. Clearly, such work can be done only a talented master stone-cutters. Used for engraving granite, and most often it is black or dark brown. Practice has shown that the darker the selected face, the better the artist manages to copy the image to the photographs. A true master is able to not only move the image from the photo on the edge, but also as a way to convey his character.
We practice four different methods of decoration of monuments:
1. Manual mode when using the engraving machine and a diamond cutter to stone applied sketch of the future text, which then makes its way with a hammer and chisel with special pobeditovye tips. Depth created during this furrows obtained from 0.5 to 1 mm. Artist-engraver uses the font's appearance, which was previously approved by the customer.
2. Application sandblaster. In this case, the choice of text and font is carried out on a computer and then transferred to a self-adhesive film with a special device called a plotter. Remains cut stencil on film, which is used for drawing text on the monument using a sandblaster. In this case, the depth of the furrows created reaches 1-3 mm, thus allowing you to perform text finish with gold leaf or paint.
3. Application letters overhead. This method is most often used when a color is selected for the monument granite, on which line of text will be hardly noticeable.
4. The application of paint on the text and portrait. The method is very time consuming, since after engraving requires primed granite, and then apply a layer of natural organic dyes, which we buy in India. There also was an intern, our master, who perfectly mastered this technique. The paint is not afraid to environmental influences. After all, it was used in ancient times to paint temples.
I want to assure those in need in the decoration of the monument that our masters will be met with understanding any request of the customer and try to prove that the money spent as payment for their work, not been spent in vain.
