I just love the word pyrography.  Woodburning, a la summercamp. It's all grown up and creating more than cross-section logs with my name scrawled in em. Yay!  I decided to do my autumn leaves pattern, and I found a cute little stool to try it out on at Michael's. Btw, I'm not sure where this should go, so it's going here for now..



A nice close up of the leaves. Keep in mind, I haven't done this since I was.. er... about 12? Now I have visions of really cool tattooed barstools.



The leaves also have a bit of stain on them, just to make them pop a bit, and then I covered the whole thing in a few coats of varnish. What do you think?

Free hand. I had drawn the design a while ago, so I transferred it onto the wood and then just carefully traced it. I started with the leaves because they were nice and organic and if I messed up it would be hard to tell Smiley

wow, this is the best use of a woodburning thingamagidget I have seen! I love it when old craft forms get improved so that they are actually pretty.  Now I'm brainstorming.
