    I have to clean a granite headstone and to paint in the lettering probably using black or gold type paint.

    Would like to know what would be the best method to clean up the granite.

    Also type of paint and preparation needed before applying paint?

    Why not?

    Screwfix sell a pocket-sized sand-blasting/gold-leafing kit for just this kind of job.

    Cheap too, at only £9.99.
