Default Humingbird Pyrography

Haven't been here for a while but I'm Baaaaaaaak . .lol.
Haven't had time to go through all the recent threads but it looks like you have all been busy and having fun.

Went to my post box over the border late this afternoon and found that Rick Hutchison had sent me a nice gift in a big brown envelope. Thanks a bunch for that Rick.
It was pyro paper both plain for me to print patterns on as well as some that he had put patterns on . This is one of his patterns he sent.

I had put pyrography on the back burner for the last while because the weather was mild enough to heat my shop and do a whole bunch of turning on the wood lathe .

After getting this gift I decided to try it out this evening. Bit of a learning curve but it worked fine. I burned the pattern onto the basswood oval right through the pyro paper and then finished the burning with the paper removed. Then I colored it with oil pencils and applied a couple coats of satin lacquer.

You print the pattern on the paper and then tape it to the wood and burn through it rather than tracing.
It is available at amazon.com

Bill that sure is a fine looking project. Glad you was able to get the paper. Not a bad way to go is it? I am trying to find more patterns to burn. Look forward to seeing more. Think I will check out that site for the paper as well. Good to find another sorce for it. Thanks for sharing.
