- Texturing stones. Whether fish or fowl (or anything else), your work will look more realistic with the correct surface textures. That s where abrasive stones come into play. But determining which ones to use often calls for some experimentation.
Your dealer will have a colorful batch of stones to choose from -- pink, green, white, and blue are usual. Each color denotes a different grit and hardness. For the stones shown above (8), white is the finest grit, thus the slowest cutting. Where the colors rank in relation to each other seems to vary among manufacturers; ask your dealer for specific advice.
Selecting texturing stones isn t a precise science. Try different combinations of color and shape until you find the ones that give the look you want. Because stones only cost a buck or two each, you can afford to fool around with a lot of them.
