  • Pyrography

    Ok, here it is my first attempt at Pyrography. I hope to incorporate this into my scrollwork.
    It is a 9 by 6 inch oval. I think it is a slab of basswood that I found in a beginners wood burning kit that my wife bought me a few years ago.
    I bought myself a complete set from Colewood, pens, power supply in a nice wooden box.
    This could also be very addictive. The pattern came with the wood and I transferred it using carbon paper. I sure like gluing the pattern on better than tracing it. That is tedious.

    Great detail Rolf, I totally agree it is so much easier just applying the paper pattern than trying to trace. I would miss tracing alot and have to try and replace and re-trace. Steve

                That is very nice. I did a little pyrography many years ago when my parents gave me a set. I may have to try it again sometime.

                  Yes Bill, that is why I always use dull blades when scrolling.

                      How do you attach the patterns when your are preparing your wood for wood burning (can't spell pyrography )? Can't see attaching with glue.

                        Chuck,

                        I used Transfer paper (a type of carbon paper) and I traced the outlines and then did the shading using the original picture as a reference.

                          Thats so great. I always wonted to do wood burrning. I tryed it on gourds. slippery. darn. transfering the pattern was one of my quitions too. in quilting. I can just sew around the desine with a bear neddale then tape it on. and , use chack. but that didn't work so well. it rubbed off. to easy. maybe I could use something else . hate drawing more than once. wont a better way. that looks great. and i love the shadding. your friend Evie

                            Wonder if one could print the pattern out on ink jet Tee Shirt Transfer Paper and just iron it on to the wood???
                            If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                              pretty awesome rolf. I like flower pictures and that picture is a perfect match for that cross-cut slab. I just have one of them plug in pen like burners with only one tip. I can plug it in and make eyelashes, that's about it. Kudo's on taking the plunge, that's a really great job for a first time go at it.

                              It makes sense to me that you would transfer the pattern with carbon paper. Gluing real paper on top might cause a fire I'd think. Ever try one of them heat transfer tools? Maybe there's an iron like attachment for your new burner? Don't know how well that method works, but it looks good in the advertisements.

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
