Pyrography Leather Boot Belt Project, Part Two


Step 4: Variable-Temperature Wood Burning Tools

If you are using a variable temperature tool, please do several test burns to determine the maximum heat setting that you will want to use.  Variable burners reach a far hotter temperature so you need to avoid the highest setting so not to scorch the leather surface.

For my variable tools I use either a loop pen tip or small ball tip to create the fine lines needed for this project.


Step 5:  Fill in the Background Area

To create the stark white and black impression of the Mayan Hieroglyph use light pressure and a scrubbie stroke to fill in the background areas of each square.




Step 6:  Outline the Design Elements

Using your wood burning tool in an upright hand position, work your tool tip over the design elements to create a thin, even black line.
