I'm 40 years old, no artistic skills whatsoever, I find this relaxing. I just do stencil things on wood coasters at the moment.
But Ive seen some truly lifelike pictures. Id like to attempt my dog or daughter. How would I go about this? I can't free hand period.
I was thinking taking a photo, using a sketch filter and trying that way by transferring it to wood Shading is something I don't have much confidence in either
Are there simpler ways I might be missing?
Exactly what the title says.
I have two pieces I did on poplar and I’d love to put a light stain on them but I’ve heard you want to use prestain conditioner on poplar. Any thoughts on this? Is it going to affect the look of the burn at all?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
So I'm just starting out. I can't free hand draw anything. Most of the stuff I have done is tracing letter fonts onto picture frames etc.
I'm from a small town, in the fall there are some small craft fares in my area. I want to make some stuff for kids as well as adults. I'm just wondering if can I trace a picture of Spiderman, Batman. Or logos like Superman S. Burn them to wood coasters or small wood plaque and sell them legally
I finally upgraded from a basic dust mask to an actual cloth and carbon filter mask that claims to filter smoke and dust. I’ve been using it for a while and don’t think it’s really doing anything. After a few hours of burning my throat feels a little soar and that can’t be good.
What kind of masks/ respirators do you all use?
Hey everyone! Im still very new to woodburning and I'm working on an oddly shaped piece (a decorative paddle) and was wondering the best way to finish it off? If there were any recommendations on how to do it so that it will still be applied evenly and dry properly that would also be greatly appreciated!
