These are the most versatile of all the types of portraits we offer. A ceramic portrait can installed on any color granite and they are gauranteed not to fade, chip or crack.
Shape carvings is a process of sculpturing with sandblast. To the left are shaped Calla Lilies and above are shaped clouds, graves and leaves.
Etching is a process of using an engraving tool to scratch an image into the surface of black granite.
Etching enables us to achieve finer detail than with traditional sandblast engraving.
Laser Etched and Hand Etched Portraits
Both Laser Etched and Hand Etched portraits need to be engraved on black granite to achieve a sharp image. Creating both of these types of portraits requires a great deal of talent and expertise. Some monument shops have purchased lasers and attempt to create their own portraits, many times the result is less than desirable. At Provost Monuments we feel the image of your loved one has to be done to perfection therefore we use professionals that specialize in portraits and do them everyday.
