We offer a wide choice of granites - both Australian and selected imported materials; imported Carrara Marble along with bronze plaques.

Ceramic Photos

We are able to supply photos that have been reproduced in Italy. These photos come in a variety of sizes and can be either colour or black & white. We can supply frames as well, dependant on your needs.

Gold Leaf

Inscriptions completed in gold leaf are truly beautiful. Each of the letters are firstly sandblasted into the granite stone after which a base liquid is painted into the carved-out letters in preparation for the gold leaf. The rice paper thin 23 carat gold leaf is then carefully and delicately brushed over each letter to make your chosen inscription contrast elegantly with the vivid colours of the granite stone.


Other embellishments available upon request include : Majolica ornaments, statues, crucifixes in bronze, chrome and gold, a large range of bronze fixtures &granite vases

Incised / Engraved

Letters are sandblasted into the surface of the stone. The lettering is then gilded or painted.

Embossed

The background is sandblasted away leaving the letter raised and polished. The background of the lettering is then gilded, painted or left natural.


Artwork

Artwork is engraved into the memorial the same way as inscriptions.

Austral Monumentals can place many designs of artwork on the headstone or monument.
