Those feathers look so REAL! I've never tried wood burning and I don't know much about it but I see very good results.

thank you gals!...woodburning is a lot of fun,,,you can get pretty creative after the line drawing,....its sort of like drawing with a really hot pencil,..i still use pencil to map everything out in the beginning....thanks for stopping by!:p

Yeah- another pyro person :) I dabble in it, among many other mediums. There are not too many regular pyrographers here, but a few come from time to time. Of course scratchbaord was that way when i joined too, and now it is popping up everywhere :D

Welcome and I love your little owl!! Please show us more.

The owl is beautiful! I laughed when I read the title because I am from Oregon, from a lumber town, and this little guy causes quite a stir. :) Beautiful work!!

hi paul...you should try it out,...it really isnt a lot different then pencil drawing,..its tricky to get use to shading,...but ive always had much better luck doing the basic line drawing 1st,,,and then shading with tight circles using just the tip,....the square peices of bass wood are a lot smoother then the round ones,,,and plus they dont have the knot in the middle.
hope you try it out.

thanks for the welcome crias---i know what you mean,woodburning isnt really as popular as a lot of mediums,ive only met acouple people that really get in to it.,,,i think what bothers people is thinking that mistakes are too permanent/?
i usually burn really lightly at 1st,,until im sure its the shape i want,,,and if i make mistakes,,,,,ooops i mean WHEN i make mistakes :D i just scrape them away with a pearing knife.
take care

thanks AXL_HAPPY
Hopefully i can do a step by step of how i approach woodburning....then mabye other pyrographers can add tips or other ways that they do things....i only use one tip 90% of the time.

Jim -- Welcome to WC -- You have a wonderful talent! I can think of no other medium that takes this much patience.

This thread has evoked memories of wood-burning on my grandmothers farm...in fact, she still hangs the "Home-Sweet-Home" placque that I made at the tender age of 9....the watermelon drips are still embeded in the wood. You see, I once was muti-talented -- I could eat AND create at the same time! Alas, a talent I no longer possess...:D
