Step 1: Materials
Wood-be creative, make a small jewelry box or tool box and wood burn something on that.
Magnifying glass-any size really, but the bigger, the better(and faster)
Stencil of what your going to woodburn-Print it out
Pencil-To trace your stencil to the actual wood
Dark Shades-Protect your eyes
Step 2: The Stencil
Print it out to the size you want
If you don't have a printer, use your artistic ability and draw it straight onto the wood
If you aren't artistic and don't have a printer, hold up a piece up paper to your computer screen very gently, Dont press hard but lightly trace the stencil.
You should now have a stencil on paper.
Step 3: Getting the Stencil on the Wood
Step 4: Tan, Relax, and Get Burning
Raise your magnifying glass up a couple of inches from the wood, find the focal point, and let the sun do the work.
All you have to do is steer the magnifying glass.
Depending on how much dark areas are in your stencil and size of the magnifying glass, the time required for this varies.
In any case, grab your radio and tanning lotion or sunblock and get going.
After finishing them you can polyurethane them for a nice look.
Here are some of my creations (I like the joker :] )
Thanks for taking the time to read my Instructable, I hope this ignites your creativity and gets you to make some awesome art for around the house or gifts for other people. People are always asking me to make these for them, so you could make some money off of this too.
