I did answer your original question like this Joben:

Welcome to the forum Joben, take a look at this thread by recent member William Young, his work is breath taking.

I think I can help you out with adding color to your pyrography. I use pastel chalks. I rub a color chalk on the tip of my finger and apply it with my finger tip. I also use a cotton tip in small areas. The nice part is you can decide the amount of color and if too much, just use an eraser to remove the amount you want.

You can get the pastel chalks at Michael's or a simular store like it.
