Woodburning




When I was younger, my uncle taught me and my cousins how to wood-burn with a soldering tool. I remember we would take turns drawing things on a cork board. I remember always drawing horses because I was obsessed with horses when I was a kid. It occurred to me recently that I could continue the wood-burning, so I did. Here are my first few attempts and I'm hooked. So expect more pyrography from me in the future.

Wow, these are really nice. Good job!

We used to do this in woodwork class back in school (a long time ago). We drew cars and wrestlers :)

May dig up the old soldering iron and give it a go too.

the drawings themselves are wonderful, but to be able to translate them into woodburning just adds so much to the art ! Keep up the amazing work.
