Drawing With Nothing But a Magnifying Glass

Introduction: Drawing With Nothing But a Magnifying Glass

So I created this drawing to show the power of the sun and one of the things it can do to create something beautiful

Supplies

Wooden board
White paint (optional)
Magnifying glass

Step 1: Making a Rough Draft

So I drew my first draft and then tried out the different sections improving and choosing what I liked most and then I sketched my final draft after improving each part

Step 2: Choosing Your Board

So I actually cut my board with a hand saw from a board that was thrown away, but you can use any size any shape to create this art

Step 3: Painting the Board

This is optional but I thought that it would make it look cooler and in my opinion it did, but it's totally your choice I just painted it white and let it dry in the sun

Step 4: Making the Outline

So after dried sketch your drawing on the wood with a pencil

Step 5: Start Burning!!

Now bring your magnifying glass to the right amount of distance from the board until the light is at its smallest point and trace your outline

Step 6: Finish

After you trace your drawing admire your artwork. I smudged mine a little to make the fire look more like fire. Thank you for reading my instructable it really means alot Have a great day!!!
