Is there a way to carve shapes out of a solid object?

I’m trying to make a tombstone, and I want the writing on it to be realistically carved in the stone. Does blender have a way to subtract one object (3d lettering) out of an other object (the tombstone)?


Boolean modifier
Sculpt tools
Displace modifier

watch these videos, i hope it may help

Boolean modifier

retopo / surface snapping also useful

This one is a bit different method -

I think what everyone is trying to say is, it may be possible.
