In this Instructable I will show you how to take an image and burn it onto a piece of wood by hand. As an example I used the heraldic lion of the House of Lannister from the book/TV series "Game of Thrones."
Step 1: Supplies
-Sandpaper, 320 grit
-Graphite Transfer Paper
-An Image to wood burn
Step 2: Preparing the Wood
Now, take your sandpaper and sand the wood to a nice, smooth finish. I would recommend wrapping the sandpaper around a flat wooden block to make sure that you get an even surface.
Step 3: Transferring the Image (for those of us who can't draw/freehand)
Take your brightly colored pen and simply trace over the image (see picture 4). Only go over the parts that you want transferred onto the wood. I would recommend no tracing any areas that you want to do shading.
