    I am using a walnut hollow burner with a tapered point tip (This is all I have right now). Please take a look at my work and let me know what I can do to improve. Thank you!

    I think you are doing a GREAT job with the tool you are using, I have built my own burners, the schematic drawing is available on this forum, if you live in USA the parts are a lot cheaper then here in Canada, I used Colwood power cord and replaceable tip pen, you can inter change your burning tips very easily and you can burn your patterns much faster, keep up the nice work

      I have done only a few pyrography projects, but your results look very good. Perhaps with other tips you can get other line effects, shading, etc. It doesn't look like you have had to experiment much to get a nice result.

        First let me say I am not a wood burner, I only use my burner to highlight my carvings in preparation for painting. Having said that, I would say there is very little room for improvement on your piece, I think it's great the way it is.
        just my .02 cents worth.......

          Wow! If you did that with a basic tool, I would say you have done the equivalent of painting a Renior, with budget brushes and acrylics from Hobby Lobby!

          That is really good!

            Hi Jena, it looks like you have a very light touch with your Burner and that's good. You don't have hot dots from setting your Pen to the wood and that's good. You have your Heat settings set right and not to Hot. Your piece is at a level that a lot of People Strive to Achieve , that includes me. If you can do work like that with the Burner that you have you don't need another Burner. Looking forward in seeing more of your work. Merle

              Thank you, guys! scotia carver, I am going to have to check that out. My hand cramps when I use my burner to long... I started burning about 6 months ago and learned fighting the grain in pine. Modifying my tip, by sanding it down and rounding it out, was the only way to get a smooth line. After working on poplar this time, I don't think I will ever burn on pine again.

                  This is beautiful. Is there anything about it that bothers you?

                    I do not think I got the shading right and I had to change the design to match the grain lines. They burned darker than I wanted.

                      I think the Dark Burning will lighten up after time. Usually People starting out have a Tendency to Burn to light and then their Piece Fades out. Don't be to hard on yourself cause your piece is Very Good. Merle

                        I have to agree with Soggy 100%. My use of a wood burner is limited...mostly to highlight my carvings in preparation for painting. I too see very little room for improvement in your work...it's excellent!

                              You might try basswood or birch plywood for something that has less of a grain. And, I know some who also burn on thick paper and do great work. Susan Irish has some great tips, patterns, and projects on her web site. She also gets great results with burners like you use, meaning it's the hand guiding the tool that produces the results! That side, you should look into Colwood or some of the other burners that have finer tips and greater control over temperatures. You would love them!
                              Learn about wood burning tools, wood burning tool tips as Lora Irish teaches you how to shade your wood burning pattern using sepia tones, textures, and fine line detailing, tracing your pattern, prepare your wood surface, finish a wood burning designs and the different medias you can use in your pyrography as leather, paper, gourds, cotton cloth, and chipboard.
