I finished my swap package and can't mail it out until the post office opens Monday so I went though all my craft supplies and found a wood burner that I've had for well over ten years and never used before. Had some scrap wood on the back porch so I decided to give it a go. I tweaked an image from the comic series and then transferred it to the wood with carbon paper. I only had one slanted tip that kept working it's way loose, so it was a lot harder to do that what I originally thought. I had a hard time getting the ink off the wood though. I got most of it off with alcohol, but then sprayed a bleach spray on the hard parts - which of course lightened the wood. I didn't have any stain so I just wiped it down with a used tea bag. The more I look at it, the more I see that can be fixed, but the more I like it!


I do love me some Rick!

Bobbysgirl, that is great, while I don't watch the show, the image is very nice. I've got a wood burner around here that I've never used either. This is an inspiration to give it a go.
