My first Pyrography project

I'm all about trying new things and when I saw Elsie's blog posts on Wood burning I knew I had to try it, it looked so much fun! I asked for a Pyrography tool for my birthday and after some reading, I set to work making a sampler of the different tips and techniques.

I bought a wood blank door hanger from Hobbycraft and I made a name hanger for my nephew by drawing my design on to the wood in pencil, burning the outlines, then filling in the colour using Acrylic paints. What do you think? I haven't mastered any of the extensive techniques yet, but I love this first, simple attempt!

Have you tried using a wood burning tool?
