The sand blasting machine costs $2,000 to $3,000, so unless you\'re going to carve a lot of granite, your best tool option is to use a special set of electric sculptors that carve rocks at diamond tip.
Make an overall design plan for your granite carving.
Think about the details of your granite project, including the size and shape of the design you want to engrave to determine the general stone size you need.

Find the granite that suits your carving project.
Wash the granite with soap and hot water.
Put the stone on the towel to drydry.
Cover a firm table with old newspaper and transfer your design to a dry granite surface with a wax pencil.
Wear safety goggles to protect your eyes from the dust generated by Granite during engraving.
Place the diamond tip at the end of the electric sculptor and start carving your design into granite, starting with the main outline of the design.
Gently press and slowly move the carving knife to give the tip enough time to cut the hard granite.
When you work, clean the rock dust on the granite surface with a towel.
Switch tips based on the type of design you are creating;

Check your granite and make sure you have all the marks completely carved.
Cut the part you missed.
Wash the rock off with hot water and let it ventilatedry.
