Here is a rock I found right outside the 'Cave of Winds'. how can I get a diaza made for it? It is around 10" tall.

Looks a very nice shape, but the apparent bruising to a few extremities and the damage a the foot are a problem. Perhaps some water weathering and a skillful daiza could improve these?

That's the problem with this rock. It is some kind of sandstone sedimented on a type of shale. I couldn't really do much about the damage because with handling, the rock sheds some sand. And ofcourse on very little impact, the rock chips.

Hi AH,

Did you try cleaning it further with soft brush and acid wash?try first with water before anything else,maybe the soft portion will get off and you might see other view,just my suggestion,hope others may shed same lights too
