SLATE TYPES GALLERY
Slate types include bannerstones, pendants, gorgets, birdstones, pipes, amulets, and other items not catagorized in other groups. Banded slate is a considerable challenge but I've had great success with matching it. Banding, texture and balance are very important and always considered in my work. I keep my paint blends to a minimum, usually less than 1/8 inch from the repaired areas. There are never any modifications or invasive techniques used on the original artifacts I restore.
