Default First Pyrography Coloring Attempt

Got my oil pencils and also got some satin lacquer to apply after coloring.
Here was my first attempt with using those oil pencils. They are quite nice to work with. Didn't do much blending at all on this one but that will come with time and practice.

Before just burned and then after with coloring added.

Beautiful both ways!

You're a patient man to color all those blades of grass so perfectly.

After drooling over both your before and after shots, why was I not surprised to find that you are a professional craftsman, as is made obvious by visiting your super professional web site. Are you prepared to do photo shoots to teach members how to make such items?

Thanks for all the kind comments.

I just used the pencils dry as is so far.
I was chicken to try shading and blending colors with a Q-Tip and mineral spirits like I have heard that some do.
Maybe I will practice that on a scrap or on a smaller test burning first.
