Carved Stone Lettering – WWII Memorial
Carved lettering in granite at The World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. Kevin handles all of our sandblasting projects. He has more than thirty years of carving experience.. Designs & Signs has carved and gilded various monuments and memorials in Washington, DC and the surrounding area. This photo illustrates the sandblasting process. A compressor is used to blast the sand into the stone surface. The rubber mask protects the covered stone surface while the exposed areas are slowly carved away. Only experienced carvers can utilize this method accurately, maintaining a consistent depth with each letter.
