Pyrography

In a recent sort out I came across my old Pyrography set, its basically a soldering iron which is used as a pen to burn designs into wood.  Mines not a great one as the point at which you can safely hold the iron is a long way from the tip. Try drawing with a pencil while holding it half way up, your control is not great.

But I had a spare plain box from The Works and so decided to have a go today, I sketched on a simple log with a bit of foliage around it and started to burn…

Once happy with the burning, I coloured in the log and surrounding plants with colouring pencils…

Then I coloured in the box with felt pens and my favourite gold marker pen…

I’ve varnished it and that’s it, all done.
