For Throwback Thursday, I’m revisiting my first Pyrography project. Pyrography is a great medium to step out of your comfort zone with, as well as good practice for building a steady hand. It’s amazing to see what you can discover about yourself through experimentation with different mediums. Roughly 4-5 hours. Solid-point burner and wood slab.

Delicate and beautiful!
This is stunning, I love how delicate it looks.
Thank you, I appreciate it.
Ooo, great job! Haven’t tried pyrography, but I’ve been doing some stencil cutting. Uses a heated cutter and, similarly, requires gentle coordination and precision.
Thank you! I’ve never tried stencil cutting but it sounds like a lot of fun to get into.
I have to try this! Looks great 🙂
Thank you, I highly recommend it. Most kits are pretty affordable and include most of what you need.
Just love all the artwork on your blogt!…(-:
Thank you Sherry, I appreciate it. You have a great gallery, seeing your work makes me want to put some time aside to revisit pastels.
They are a lot of fun. I have a hard time choosing a medium though. I’ll look forward to seeing what you do with them.
Nice job! It’s a great idea to get out of your comfort zone and try a new medium…never know what you’ll discover. Thanks for visiting my blog!
Thank you, Karen! I very much agree. Regardless of how embarrassing the first attempts may be, one can only get better.
Oh wow. I’ve always wanted to learn pyrography. Your first one is so detailed too.
I highly recommend it, the smell of smoking wood alone is quite therapeutic. After the initial pencil drawing, I knew I had a lot of work ahead of me, but like every other medium it’s just a matter of patience. Once you know how much pressure to apply with your strokes, you’re well on your way.
