Wood Burning


George had kindly cut us some atc size pieces of wood so we had a play with my new gadget. I was just messing again and did some real basic stuff as it was quite hard to burn the wood due to the grain, but Hilda did a fantastic piece, see it here. She stamped the wood and traced round the edge with great effect and then aged it with a varnish. We also discovered how to use gold leafing too!!!! I stamped the easel image and took the easy option as all the lines were straight!!! The left side block is just freehand, but we did also have a go at soldering jump rings and charms onto a piece of lead. I also decorated the heart with dots. We did all this and managed not to burn ourselves or set anything alight, I think we need a medal!!!!

I think you're doing really well with this new tool - it's early days but already you've produced some useable pieces.
