I've been fascinated with the Lichtenberg Fractal Art process since I first saw it on YouTube. After a lot of research and a lot of safety considerations, I finally built my own device from an MOT (Microwave oven transformer). The results have been jaw-dropping. Just a few months (and two transformers) later, I have burned hundreds of items. Every item shown on my Etsy site is 100% created by hand, by me. This includes initial selection of the wood, cutting slices, sanding, burning, scrubbing, cleaning, sealing, flood coating with epoxy resin, pouring the final resin coating for that beautiful glass-like finish, and placing the four felt feet on the bottom before shipping them off to your door.

☠︎⚡︎Just a side note - the power of electricity is a thing to behold and I do not recommend that most tinker with it. The MOT has an output of over 2,000 volts and 500 milliamps. That is far more than is needed to kill you. If you do choose to, be sure to research the safety precautions and understand fully that one mistake is enough and you certainly won't get a second chance. ⚡︎☠︎

Bismuth is an amazing material that my niece and nephews and I love working with! I've hand created each and every piece, with the occasional help and "oversight" from the kiddos. Every single one is a one of a kind! I have a session or two a week, I keep the most amazing ones and melt down the rest. I'm just getting started on here and will get more posted as soon as possible! Thanks for visiting!
