This little “Let the Stress Begin” Bird Pattern for pyrography and wood carving is worked on a mini-clipboard that measures 6 1/2″ high by 4″ wide. The outer 1/2″ edge of the clipboard was covered with painter’s tape after the pattern was traced. This protects that area of wood from being burned and when it is removed you have a clean, straight-lined border.
This is a simple silhouette burn on a high setting for your wood burning tool for the bird’s outline and body fill. The background grass was worked using a ball-tip pen on a medium temperature setting.
The white and yellow were added after the pyrography was completed using acrylic craft paints. After they dry finish your wood burning using your favorite spray sealer.
