I absolutely love the flower XD Do you leave some of the wood still showing through? (such as a glaze of color?)

I have done wood burning off and on since middle school and never really though to add paint to the mix. I may have to take over the porch and try it again, no sense in setting off the sprinklers in my new place.

To those just starting:
Buy a decent wood burner. Do not get the rose art one that they have for 12$ I know it seems like a good idea since it comes with stuff to burn in to but it just doesn't get hot enough to do anything fun (Or I used it so much that it died, within a week) so I would suggest something between 20-30$. I bought mine at Lowes.

As for wood, I mostly used scrap pine that my dad had. I found soft woods easier to burn in to and didn't mind the smell of pine burning. Don't use treated wood (often used for decks and fences), bad idea with the chemicals in the wood it may get toxic. Use a small fan or work in a breezy area to keep the smoke from getting into your face, it burns the eyes worse than chopping onions  Roll Eyes

If you are really nice to the guy at lowes then they can cut a piece up for you so you don't have to buy plaques at Michaels (unless you want a really fancy piece) until you get the hang of it...

Sorry to hijack your thread, I just thought I would share something I do have experience with  Lips sealed

wow those are great I'm feeling inspired based on the fact that you were able to create those pieces using a basic kit

Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.
