Process: Laying-out


Laying-out is the planning of a design on the surface of the stone. Roman carvers often sketched out the basic form of the design that they had to carve on to the surface of the material they were working with. These guidelines could be detailed drawings or simply scratches on the stone which might act as reference points. They are found on a wide range of objects and are usually only preserved in areas which would originally have been hidden from view.
