    experiments in pyrography

    Simple bowl with a quilt pattern burned on the rim. It's pear. The pattern is from one of my wife's quilting books. I think it's called "Texas Star". Just playing around trying to learn how to use my pyro machine.

    Looks really good, how long did it take to do the quilt design?

    Thanks. The burning went pretty fast. There's a pattern to it and you can get on a roll focusing on all the parallel lines. Copying it onto the bowl, I made a few mistakes. I should have been more careful aligning the patterns, or made the pattern bigger than the bowl so I wouldn't have needed to align the pattern at all. I used clear printable transparency film made for projectors. I'm still learning, and there are some things I would have done differently, if I had it to do over again. Next time....

    I pasted the photo in rather than attach it. I guess some of us can and some cannot see it. Let me try to attach it.

    Tom Lucas, you mentioned in your post that you were experimenting with your "pyro machine". I'm curious, did you wood burn this by hand or did you use an automated/pre-programmed machine?

    By hand, a Burnmaster dual pen system. I guess a machine to do this would be a laser? jI guess one could mechanize an iron too. But not my cup of tea; I zero interest in automated CNC-like anything.

    In my opinion, that makes your results all the more impressive. Nice going!
