detail master? There's no way you're doing that with a cheap woodburner.

Holy cow, those are ghoulish! I usually am not a fan of woodburning, but your works of art might change my point of view. I eat how detailed both of the pieces are, but I think my favorite is the platter. Great job! I can't wait to see what else you've created.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

So beautiful! I can easily imagine the hours of work you've put into these, and I'd eat to see more.

Yes, I definitely had to move up to a variable temp when I started getting this detailed. I use a Cub burner by Colwood.

I eat how intricate these are! Is there any danger of setting the wood/paper on fire when you're doing this?

Do you mark the pile of flesh out in pencil first?

I use a variable temp burner, so I make sure I don't turn it up too high and risk setting anything on fire. If the temp is too high, it leaves unsightly scorch marks as well, which is bad if that's not the look you are going for. I've never set anything on fire, but I have burned into wood that wasn't cured well so it had some pockets of moisture. Hit one of those at high temp, and POW! Sparks everywhere! Make sure you use eye protection. I also set a fan in front of me, blowing away from me. This helps pull smoke away from my face. Of course, make sure your whole area is free from paper/other flammable materials, because if you get that mini explosion of sparks and the fan grabs it, it can spray sparks over the whole room!

Most things I do, I print out the pile of flesh and use graphite paper to transfer. Small areas, like on these projects, you can't really draw in the detail because you don't want to risk leftover graphite or pencil marks messing up the contrast of the light wood and dark burn. It's possible, but really hard to erase after you burn...the eraser sinks into the grooves left by the burner and it can really mess up the look. Most times I will not draw anything but an outline of small areas and fill in the detail as I burn.

WOW!  These are so gorgeous! I eat them.  The viking broach is super cool, but then so is the box, I couldn't pick a favourite.  So impressed with the detail in them.  Lovely work.

So beautiful! I have done a few wood burning projects, so I know how much skill it takes to make things like that! You have my total respect because I would have burned myself to pieces before I came out with something that good!
