Wood burned on 200-year-old basswood that was sick and had to be cut down, it took me 38 hours to finish the design, which depicts the characters of this popular movie. This piece was very interesting, as it taught me a valuable lesson in pyrography.
It is extremely important to test the wood before you start using it for a pyrography design. The wood seemed to be dry, so I wood burned the picture and applied a few layers of lacquer. It looked amazing, and I’m glad I took photos after its completion because 3 years later, 40% of the dark patterns are gone.
Luckily, due to modern technologies, you can buy it on poster or canvas, so although the original vanishes at some point in time, we can keep it alive.
