Default Sue Walters Basic Tutorial

I finally got the Sue Walters book today that was returned to the library from the previous person that had it.
I highly recommend this book for any beginners like myself.
I did the first lesson in her book which is her basic one. Even at this level I have a LOT to learn but it is a fun learning experience. She has intermediate and advanced level patterns and tutorials as well but I need more practice at the basic level before moving on. ..
This was the first time I used the skew tip and a shading tip.

Question. ? ?
I have this piece unfinished on 1/8" Baltic birch plywood and under glass in the frame.
Is it customary to leave them unfinished if putting under glass but to put a good hard film finish on the wood if it is not going under glass. ? That is the way I did it when doing a lot of fretwork portraits so was wondering if the same applies to pyrography.

Bill Sue Walters I have corresponded a few times over the years on woodburning. She is possibly one of the greatest pyrographers around. I use Verathane glosss clear waterbased spray on my burnings, it keeps the UV rays away. Check out these sites.
