That eagle looks so realistic! I never thought something like that could be done with wood burning.

I've been interested in taking up wood burning for giggles for a bit now, but I've never known how to get started. Would you happen to have any advice for a beginner?

Sorry for the not responding sooner, I dont check my Deviantart messages to often. The cheaper woodburners are difficult to use for a couple of reasons, one they dont get as hot as the nibs or detail masters and two they stay at a constant temp. Utilize the tips as best you can wider ones for bigger areas and smaller ones for finer shading. Try to use cross hatching or pointilism techniques due to the constant temp of the pen. You can also practice holding the pen on the wood and seeing how long it takes to go to vsrious shades from dark to light. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to email me and thank you for the compliments on my piece.

What kind of burner do you have? If it is a craft store burner without an adjustable heat element then practice various mathods of shading ie...cross hatching, pointilism, etc...Different woods will brun differently some have a very coarse grain and will make the buners tip jump others are really soft and burn fast and your tips will make black holes in the wood. You can brun on materials other than wood also, like leather or tagua nuts for instance. Just a little advice, if you have any questions feel free to ask, I am always glad to help and thank you for your comment on my woodburning. Also, you can research woodburning under pyrography for other materials and equipment. I would love to see what you turn out.

Its a very simple burner with a single flat head tip. I got it cheap at Michael's. The only heat settings are off and hot pretty much. And I see what you are saying. I never thought about burning someone other than wood...But i will keep that in mind also. All of this has been extremely helpful and made me think of other ideas for wood burning! I will definitely take a look and send you the link of the piece I complete :D
Thank you soo much for getting back to me on this!

I will probably work more on shading with my next piece. Your words have made me more confident with this median of art. I can't thank you enough!

You seem to be talented enough to not need any encouraging words from me. That piece looks awesome. Cant wait to see what you can do after you have praticed a while, and this is with one of the cheap burners, imagine what you could do with a Detail Master or a Nibs burner. I see ALOT of potential.

You're words still mean alot to me! I actually went out the other day and got a new burner that was a little smaller (easier to hold) with a better variety of tips. I will definitely in the future invest in some of the higher end burners, but these will do for now :)
Thank you again for everything!
