The pyrography or wood burning for sale here has been created using a small pyrography tool similar to a pen.
Similar to drawing with a pencil the end of the tool is pushed down into the wood and it creates small burns. The longer the tool is left on the wood, the bigger the burns become.
Photographed below is the main pyrography tool .
To prepare the surface that is to be burnt the outside is first sanded.
Before any burning begins a design is first created on paper, when that is complete it is lightly drawn on to a wooden box or chest. These designs are then burnt into the wood. Sometimes different nibs are require on the end of the pyrography tool to do this.
When the burning is complete the chests are then lightly wiped to clear up any ash. The chests are then double varnish to help strengthen them and keep the designs in good condition. It also adds a very beautiful glow to the chests.
