The hope was to keep the soapstone natural or naked. I like the cadet blue-grey. However, a kitchen accident splashing chicken fat all over the stone was the straw that broke this camel's back. The stone was cleaned, dried, then wax was applied. The wax makes the surface a little more forgiving to everyday wear. I like the way it turned out so giving up the naked stone wasn't so hard. Now I need to decorate the walls.
Soapstone - naked
Soapstone - waxed
A photograph applied to canvas is something that I'm considering. An extra large canvas (48" x 36") should work great on one of the empty walls (not shown here). So I'm thinking of bringing some of the garden into the kitchen and don't know which version of my tomato looks best.
Tomato - bright
Tomato - dark
But 1st I need to find a reliable source to print the photograph to canvas. Any suggestions or opinions are welcome.
