Pyrography


Wood burning is fun! (A little dangerous...but fun...)

I've been painting on wood for years and really enjoy it. I love the way the paint soaks into the wood. Lately I've been experimenting with pyrography, which is wood burning. The tool, which looks like a soldering iron is used like a pencil to draw images on wood. It's pretty fun!

"Angel of Love" is currently available at auction on ebay.

I had a woodburning kit when I was a little girl--I LOVED it! I so wish I could find it now. :)

i LOVE woodburning! there is a beautiful decorative techinique in Poland of woodburning... I'm not exactly sure of what it's called but I have a few small trinket boxes that feature this style. It's mostly circles and patterns, then painted or stained.
I would like to try my characters on a box like you have done here, you've created a delightful little place to hold treasures!

Hi Tascha, I haven't tried that myself. I see the kits for sale at Micheal's all the time. I think about it as I am walking by. But I haven't taken the plunge yet. Sounds like it would be fun though. Your piece turned out really cute.

Hello Tascha

Can you recommend any classes in Toronto where I can learn how to do this artform.

Thanks
