Welcome Back

Well that title is a bit of a mouthfull isn’t it. Zoomorphic creatures were first found in the Book of Kells, they feature animals and people intertwined in knotwork styles. Here is a picture of the first pyrography project I did, it features Zoomorphic birds from the Book of Kells.

Welcome Back

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before but one of the other crafts I enjoy when I can get suitable wood, is pyrography. This is the ancient craft of burning designs into wood. I’ll share some of the projects I have created over the next few weeks.

First up is my Celtic Angel

The images comes from a rubber stamp, I changed the sizing using a photocopy of the image, then with carbon paper transferred the design onto the wood. From there I used a Peter Child Pyrography machine to go over the design and add the shading.  I wish I could say that I drew it but sadly my freehand drawing is nowhere near this good.

The Woodburner a great on-line resource for all things Pyrography http://www.woodburner.com/index.php

Checkout the download section of the Woodburner as it has tutorials.

 

Caution; Not all wood is safe to use for pyrography! Some woods give of toxic fumes especially MDF bacase of the glue used in its production. Check out the articles on the woodburner for more information about which woods are safe to burn with. Always work in a well ventilated area.
