Pyrography:burnt poetry

I got my dad this Fire Writer pyrography tool by Antex for his birthday. This morning we tried it out on the patio in the sun. 

It takes a bit of practise to figure out the pressure and how slow to move the nib to get an even burning but I think there could be endless ideas on creating artwork on wood and leather. 

There is a lovely smoked wood smell as you work. Pyrography is something I have not tried before but I was surprised at how fine details and even shading can be acheived on wood.  

I would love to slice logs into disks with the bark still on and burn lines of poetry-poetry trees. Considering I’ve not yet mastered my name successfully yet think a bit more practise is in order.
