Playing with pyrography
Mar 19th, 2016 at 1:43pm
 
I recently acquired a Razortip burner and have been entertaining myself.

The elm jar has a bit of color, done with my wife's watercolors.

The sycamore jar has the Chinese symbol for (wait for it!) "ginger" on it.

The bowl was a practice piece after I got the burner and has a lot of various doodling on it.

If those are first efforts they are pretty darn nice. I've been burning for about a year and It seems to me the learning curve is just as steep as learning to turn.

Very nice Tony, I really like the Japanese work I can't wait to see where you take this with more experience. Because your first is better than my first was. Mine improved over time because learning how to flow with the different tips does take practice and a bold stroke. Very much like painting with a artist brush.

Thanks, Breck - that means a lot coming from you.

Tony, I REALLY like your pyrography on your turnings as they certainly add a personal and very artistic touch to them!  I recently purchased a Mastercarver Burnmaster unit and have been experimenting with it, but regrettably, the results show I need much more practice.  :>(  How long have you been using your unit and do you have any pro's/con's with it and have you used it for very long or???  Any comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!  Safe turning to you and thanks for sharing such beautiful turnings and embellishments!!! Thumbs Up

Thanks again for the kind comments. I really don't have anything to compare the Razortip to except for the hand-help soldering iron type units, and it beats them all to pieces.  When I first got it, Itried a few things, some of which you see here.

Since April or so, I've been going a different direction with my turnings and making more standard items that don't lend them so much to embellishments.  This winter when craft shows are over, I will likely do more pyrography - I have some ideas that I want to try.

Tonight I attended the first art class I have taken since high school (actually, probably since junior high).  I'm interested to see where that takes me. Hopefully, I'll be able to come up with my own designs for burning, rather than copying other people's designs.

Tony...please keep us posted on your new turnings and embellishments!  I'm fairly good at drawing 'stick figures', but after that, my 'artistic' abilities...well let's just say that I'd better stick to wood carving and wood turning, although I REALLY enjoy other turners embellishments and pyrography seems to be a VERY viable addition to one's embellishment techniques!  Keep up the great work and keep us posted on your progress at you latest art class!  Safe turning to you always!
