When I first tried to burn on wood, it was just for fun and different than the art I was doing at the time. Then one Christmas my husband bought me a nice burning kit. It came with a variable-temperature pyrographic machine, 2 burning pens, and a sample kit with different material to burn on with the instruction and characteristics for each. Included in the samples were 2 Tagua nuts and a piece of wood. I know I love burning on the wood, it was even better with the control of the variable heat. The new item I tried was the tagua nut, my first attempt didn’t turn out so well, when the nut is heated it releases oil, which is a challenge. With patience and the love of art, I learned how to work with it.
Burning on both wood and tagua takes time, patience and the love of the process.
I also create pet portrait from your photograph.
