Default A Hairy Situation

This was my first practice piece of burning hair on a 4" x 8" scrap of poplar plywood. I had never burned an animal with hair on it and wanted to see how it was compared to burning feathers (as on birds).

I copied this one chipmunk from a 8 x 10 pattern that has a pair of chipmunks on it just to see if I could burn a recognizable replication of an animal with hair.

It was pretty tricky to do for my first one but I did learn quite a bit on it so will hopefully be better next time .



Guess there is some hope yet for this rookie burner and if I ever master hair to my satisfaction I will probably have a try at an animal with fur but that seems like it would be way more difficult than either feathers or hair.

Like John, I am not a burner [except from slow feed speed....LOL], but it looks good from my view.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

I guess it's a lot like doing watercolour; 'a card laid is a card played'...no erasing.
Looks really good from here, Bill!

I like it!
