Wood burning 101 - Techniques and Tricks
I am looking to get into a new creative art and release some positive energy and have turned my eye to woodburning. I have not drawn seriously since middle school ( I am 22). Do you all often buy your wood? I didn't know if finding wood cuts on trails and such of a hard, dry wood would not do well with burning? I wanted an inexpensive hobby to start out with and grow.
What would be the best way to avoid cooling the tip so quickly. I have a rather cheap wood burner and as I burn the lines get too light within 5 - 10 seconds. Would this be because of the quality of the tool or would this most likely happen with any burner?
