Tall Ship and Technique

132_tallShip1

Pyrography on Maple. 12 x 12 Before I started using my current burner from Razer Tip a lot of time was spent with a hobby burner experimenting with different techniques and cuts of wood. It might seem counter intuitive, but I strongly advocate working with basic tools to get the hang of pyrography. Having infinite …

Harvest in Hand

211_harvestHand

Pyrography on pine with oil colour. 9 x 7 Beyond composition, the focus of this wood burning is texture and contours. I love cranking the burner up to 1700 degrees and dimpling the surface. For the hand I focused on continuous lines. The technique is pretty hard on the tips because I end up using …
