Step 1: Gather Supplies; Find What Inspires You

My tools for this project is:

Old cutting board

Wood burning tool ( Walmart about $9)

Pencils for drawing your art on your piece of wood

What inspires me is anything and everything that deals with fish, fishing, etc. So I decided to draw a rolling/tailing redfish on an old once useless cutting board.

Step 2: Start Burning

I start by burning the solid lines first within the drawing.

Then work shading off the solid lines.

As you can tell I changed my mind when it comes to the reflection of the fish.

Once content with your masterpiece, you can put it on display whether its the wall, on top of a table, or what I might do is re cover it with food grade stain and use it as a cutting board again.

Step 3: Wood Burning in Action

This is a previous project I have done and posted it on Youtube. Came out better than I expected. Have fun and Burn away (Safely of course).
