How to Hang or Stand Your Hand Carved Stone

Stand and NailCarved Stone StandingEach one of my hand carved stone pieces comes ready to hang. We even provide the nail and all hanging hardware required. If you have purchased one of the many pieces that can stand as well as hang we provide the stand as well.

Hole for Hanging A nail in a piece of drywall will support approximately 20 pounds. Our stone carvings weigh less than 5 pounds each. Just hammer the nail into the wall as if you were going to hang a picture (at approximately a 45 degree angle). Then pull the nail out as far as you can without removing it from the wall. Line the hole on the back of the rock up with the nail and push the rock onto the nail and towards the wall until it is flush with the wall. This ensures that the nail is all the way inside the hole on the rock. When removing the rock from the wall lift it upward to free it from the nail.

Artwork StandingRon has taken great care to balance the stones so that they will hang accurately on the wall. To stand the piece, just place the rod into the hole on the back. The artwork will be supported by the pressure created when leaning back on the rod. Your piece will also arrive with detailed instructions for hanging and/or standing your stone carving.

Signed and Dated Each piece is signed and dated by the artist. Your order will also include a biography about Ron White, a description card for your design, a stand, a nail and information regarding the care of your artwork.
