Recent pyrography projects. Without frames they measure about 11” x 15” except for Marilyn at 8 X 10….....Credits for original images go to Bob Coronato for bucking bronco, Nelson Boren for the young cowboys, Michelle Kondos for the chief and son. Harley pinup is licensed to Harley Davidson motors and I’m not sure about Marilyn.

Beautiful work, I can’t pick a favorite. Are you following a pattern, or is this freehand?

Re; therealSteveN “Are you following a pattern, or is this freehand?” no of course it’s not freehand. I’m just replicating photos i’m finding online. transfer a light outline of figures and shade to match the image

Amazing work!
The only people who really appreciate the skill and patience involved in these projects are the ones who have burned themselves multiple times in attempting something like this!

I like the 3 western themed ones the best—not shorting the others at all; just my personal favorites!

My personal favorite is the bucking bronco! Anyone who has tried pyrography can appreciate how difficult it is to do such detailed pictures.

They are all fantastic! What wood do you use to get such controlled burning?

Great work there, pard….!! Stellar job on doing the pyrography. I dabble a little myself on burning, except I do it on leather. I just recently posted a picture of a Comanche Chief I burned, and posted it as a project. You have some very nice shading effects on darks and lights. I’ve never burned wood, but might give it a try someday….!!
