I have been obsessed with owls for a while now...collecting, making, whatever.  I started playing around with a woodburning tool last year, and I'm finally getting comfortable with using the different tips.  I use a Dremel versa tip for the different shading tips, and for the straight lines I use a very old woodburning tool from the 70's...it was the first one I ever had and this is the only tip that it still has...I guess I just got used to it.  The temp differences are so weird to get used to.  Anyway, I think barn owls are the most adorable of the species, so I made this.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

Stunning! I just bought a versa tip and used it for the first time tonight. I used the tip that was already on it and the results were pretty cool. I've never done any kind of woodworking before and I was pretty impressed by it. I didn't have any problems until I tried to take the tip off. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to take it off! I tried one of those non slip grip lid openers to no avail. Over top of that so I wouldn't damage it, I used needle nose pliers. Still nothing. How did you change out your tips?  Huh

Thanks!

Actually, I do use needle nose pliers...I just grip the tip directly and drop it into a glass jar so it cools off.  Then I use the pliers to screw a new one in.

That's amazing work for only one pen tip! The shading looks great.
