Project Information

In my last post, I mentioned that I was going to take a Pyrography class. I did this past weekend, a 2 day session consisting of learning the basic strokes and techniques shown on the second picture on Saturday and then on Sunday applying what we learned the day before to a platter(in my case) which is the third picture.

The first picture is my first finished burning done without any teacher's aid. I sent the teacher a picture of it and she said she had no critiques to make and that I did a good job. Of course adding that the more I practice the better I will become. Yes, I also turned this platter.

I truly enjoyed the experience I had in the 2 day session!

Comments and critiques welcomed and appreciated.

That some really awesome wood burning there Erwin! If anybody thinks its a 'piece of cake' crafting like this … they should give it a try! I love the choice of design for your platter … well done!

You make me thinking to take a pyrography lesson because I'm not happy with mine.
It looks you are pro.

Very well done
Seems like it was a good class and you seem to have taken
to it like a duck to water. Look forward to your future combined
projects.
The practice piece about covers most you need to know.

Sam, and anyone else, taking a pyrography or wood burning class would benefit anyone desiring to improve his/her skill. Even by just taking the basics it will at least get you started doing the burning the right way and you will be on your way. I took the application class to learn more and be with the instructor if I should run into difficulty. Just to let you the cost of the class was $90.00 per day and for me, well worth it. There were 6 of us beginners. I am by no means a pro but with more practice, I could become one. As you can see in the third picture my painting skill needs a lot of improvement which is why I usually let my wife do the painting, she is a PRO!

Amazing work for a first Edwin. Your course really paid off, although I'm not surprised at your rapid progress after seeing the quality of your previously posted projects.
