I have been experimenting with woodburning combined with painting for about two weeks, these are my first three pieces. I would totally recommend trying out this medium, it's unusually satisfying to burn and image in wood. They have basic kits at the regular craft stores and really fancy kits online. I have only used a basic kit but if I keep making this stuff maybe I'll up grade, who knows. Hope you like them!

Wow! Thoses are awesome! I remember woodburning at Girl Scout camp and loving it. It's been like 12 years so maybe I should try it again soon. Smiley I love the skulls one especially; th woodburning lends a lot of texture to the piece.

This is awesome thank you!!! I have been trying to figure out a good method to re-create some art & crafts style accessories for my dad. This will be perfect for father's day! And I get to play with a wood burner! I love tools and fire. Thanks for the idea!

I woodburn first and then paint. It helps if you start with a light coating of acrylic that is watered down and then build up to thick paint in the areas you want to highlight. My set was a gift from the dreaded Walmart but I've seen them at Michael's. There are sets with different tips: sharp, rounded, shapes and letters.

These are beautiful!!  I bought a basic kit a few years ago but have yet to use it on wood (I've used it to melt designs into velvet) . I just might be inspired now.

These are beautiful!  I did woodburning with my dad back in jr high and HS, but never added paint.  It looks so different, and so wonderful!  I LOVE the texture...man, I need to see it my dad still has my old set!
