Introduction: Pyrography: How to Burn a Wolf on a Tagua Nut Slice

In these two videos I invite you to watch while I burn a wolf on a Tagua nut slice.

Tagua nuts are an ivory-like surface that is perfect for burning or carving and is a renewable resource. Harvested in South America these nuts offer a lovely surface.

There are however a few tricks to burning on them which I will discuss in the videos. These unique behaviors can be used to the artist's advantage and I will share how!
