Welcome to dickblick
One of the most enjoyable soft stones to work with, Sculpture House Soapstone comes from the Midwest region of the USA. Its color varies from piece to piece, and it contains natural striations and layering that do not diminish its appeal. Since soapstone is so easy to carve and finishes to a high gloss with minimum effort, it's great for beginners.
Soapstone contains no asbestos. It is available in randomly sized pieces, so listed sizes and weights are approximate.
Soapstone Classpack, 4 Pieces

Soapstone Classpack, 5 Pieces
This classpack contains five 2 lb pieces of stone, each measuring approximately 4" × 4" × 2".

Comments about Sculpture House Sea Mist Soapstone:
Great product, the soap stone is very smooth and easy to carve. I work as a sculpture teacher and find that its great for beginner and easy to cut with a hack saw, to make smaller pieces for my beginning student. The larger pieces are always interesting because you get a variety of interesting shapes and forms. Most of the smaller pieces are cut in block shapes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love picking out my own soapstones, looking at the shapes and imagining what they might become. But since I have no place to pick out stones near my home, and I live about 100 miles froom the nearest Dick Blick, I have been buying soapstone online through them for a while now. I love the speedy delivery and the fact that the stones are in rectangular blocks so that I know what I will get when ordering sight unseen. The stones are not too brittle or soft and not too hard either. I can usually achieve the end result I desire. As an art teacher, I like the fact that the stones I purchase for my students are all pretty much the same and a bit less brittle so that they all have similar material to work with. I did not give this product 5 stars because I would like to have a bit more variety in color. On rare occasions that I am able to buy in the Dick Blick stores, there are a few color choices. But when I buy online, I am stuck with the dark green/black stones.

Two pound block came nice and square, works like clay is so soft and easy to carve dissolving into talc. It's really excellent. Shipping was fast, certainly worth the buy.
