Just for the picture, he always carried a big piece of chalk, like the kind that kids use for drawing on sidewalks. He would turn it sideways & run it up and down the face to make it stand out for the photo. The 1st rain would just wash it off.
Thanks, Steelybeast.


John used this Old Stone Rubbing Kit.

He was kind enough to send a kit to me last week.
