Introduction: Pyrography (Woodburning)
- Silverline Woodburning Pen Set, I bought this from ebay for under £15 including delivery
(but any woodburning pen will do just a great a job).
- Image / photograph.
- A piece of wood (this is a cutting from a tree I had in the garden it is a Conifer or Thujopsis dolabrata).
Step 1: Sketch Your Image
Sketch your image onto the wood with your pencil.
Step 2: Burn Your Image
Draw over the pencil sketch with your woodburning tool , shading in as you go taking note of the shadows and highlight areas, the longer you hold the woodburning tool on the wood for the darker it becomes.
