3 Little Woodburnings


I got a more detailed and less hot woodburning pen last night. I do gain more control by using this pen and I can do much finer lines. Here are 3 little 2" by 3" pieces from experimenting the new pen.

Woodburning plaques used to be something that grandma picked up at a flea market with a whole bottle of shelac on poured it. You've turned it into a real art form. Good on ya!!!!

Very nice fine lines. The new pen seems to be working much better for you.

By the way, I like your mom's bag a lot; her work is meticulously lovely as usual (button flowers- what a cute idea)! :)

These are really lovely, I especially like the one far left. Are you thinking of painting/staining these at all or just leaving them natural?

Gina:
I need to experiment on adding colors to these, or maybe just stain them to make them darker? I've never done woodburning before; it's still very new to me! :)

Peter Emmerich said...

awesome- what kind of wood are you using?

flora said...

Peter... they are just regular wood from the craft store. Didn't really say what kind of wood on the package though. They are pretty thin and not hard.

Peter Emmerich said...

Probably bass wood or something...you have done a SUPER job- really, I love them and your work!

Wish we were closer to talk about drawing. Everything on here is just wonderful!
