Trying the pyrography...!

A few days before, A bought a soldering iron, which contained some copper attachments that can be used for wood burning. Today, after a long day at University, I decided to take a break by giving pyrography a try! It was more like an experiment, which didn't know if could work! I really had no idea about what to make, just googled pyrography designs and found some in flickr.
Then, I copied the drawings on a piece of plywood using a pencil (didn't use a see through paper)

and by using two attachments, a pointed for the contour and a conical for the fill, started the burning..

 So here's the final picture..
..and a more artistic along with my plants!
A new hobby begins??
Dedicated to A, who has his birthday today!
Always have a great time,


  1. We went through a wood burning faze and had quite a bit of fun. We did best with making signs. For us letters were easier than pictures! It's always fun to try new things. Who know what hidden talent you may discover!

  2. I have vague memories of my brother doing this years ago -- maybe when we were in school. I have one that was done of my great-grandparent's homestead in Mississippi. It hangs in my tv room. I think you've done great for a first try. Have fun! Best wishes, Tammy

  3. Wow! Very artistic! All the best with your new hobby! Ning x : )
    And Happy Birthday to A!
