Getting started with the Art of Pyrography (wood burning)

For this week’s DIY, I decided to try something I’ve never done before, Pyrography. Pyrography is also known as wood burning, is the art of burning designs into wood and it is inexpensive and a fun way to add some fun into an old (or new) piece of wood.

The materials you will need:

A Solid Tip pen for beginners (Hot tool)

Any piece of wood, for this project I used an old cutting board.

Sandpaper (220 grits)

A pencil

Acrylic paint (if you want to add color to your designs)

I’m still learning how to burn the design into wood, so keep calm and wait for more wood burning projects!
