    Cherry Vase & Pyrography

    I just finished a cherry vase with a cardinal burned into it. It was from a order and I think the lady is from Ohio in town visiting relatives. She also wants a platter with a meadowlark on it for her husband who is from Kansas. She wants this one colored so that is going to be a little more difficult. This one is 9" across and 3 1/2" high. It is finished with rattle can lacquer.

    Well off to the shop to start the platter.

    Looks great, Bernie. You're sure picking up this pyrography stuff quickly. We're gonna have to change your name to Burny if you keep this up.

    Wow Bernie! That looks great. Are you laying a pattern down first or are you doing it all freehand? Either way you have a very steady hand.
    Very nice!

    That's really nice, Burn-man. I'm curious, did you know of your artistic talents before taking up burning?

    Thank you all for the kind comments. Believe it or not Vaughn some people spell my name Burney. Oh well yes I am having fun with this. I have sold six turnings so far and have paid for the burner. The platter I am working on will pay for the pens.

    Tom I use saral paper to lay down the outline of the bird. The rest is freehand.

    Cynthia I did not know. I did buy a DVD by Sue Walters and studied it but it just seem to come easy. I had a bunch of small thin wood pieces laying around so also did a lot of practice. I will say this, it does take a lot of patience.
