Default Going To Try A Burn Of Geese

Waiting for that poplar plywood to come is taking so long that figured I would try this one in the meantime on Baltic birch plywood.

I have a couple ovals of Walnut Hollow wood with bark on the edges and a couple ovals with a plain routed edge but figured I should get a little better at burning before using them .

This pattern is from a Sue Walters book I have.

Looks like you've got a good set up there Bill. Maybe a small fan to keep the smoke out of your face.

I saw a couple of your other posts regarding pyrography. You mentioned the Sue Walters pattern, her 'Pyrography Workbook' (if you don't have it) has lots of good techniques and patterns. Lora Irish also has some good books for both pyrography and carving. Most of her books are published by Fox Chapel Publishing.

Another good book that I have is 'Woodburning with Style' by Simon Easton.

There is also some pyrography paper used to transfer patterns to wood. Print on it, attach it to your wood and lightly burn through the paper to transfer the pattern.

Good luck, have fun and don't burn the house down.

Nice thing about Pyrography is that you can do it in a very small place. When I moved from out on the mountain side to town I am now in a smaller house with no shop so all my big power tools are in storage. That pyro setup shown is in a little area of the living room .
That blue unit on the left side is a carbon activated fan that not only draws smoke away but also eliminates any odor. Of course there is very little smoke to pyro unless doing a bit of deep burning.

I have always wondered about that pyrography paper . Does it create much smoke or does it curl up and make a bit of a mess when burning through it ? ? Is it suited only for larger outline transferring or can smaller detail areas be burned right through it?
It is only available on line so I have been reluctant to order the quantities available because would prefer to just try one or two sheets first .

It is in a 9 x 11 frame
