Finding pyrography blanks is not that difficult to achieve.
Wood burning can be done on a variety of surfaces – as long as they have no special finishes applied and are of a natural material – you are “A” for Away!
You will never be short of wood burning projects – no matter what your style or needs are.
As the name implies, wood burning or pyrography, means burning art. This means that using the right base is very important.
Pyrography Wood Blanks
Most pyrographers use wood. But not any type of wood.
All timber must be dried and be untreated natural wood.
It definitely has benefits when you use a soft timber like basswood, which is the most popular choice by many wood burners world wide.
Admittedly, it is not easily available to some artits, particularly off the American continent where basswood is not common or grown in their part of the world.
As long as the wood you use is soft, does not have too many knots or hard blemishes to interrupt your design, you should have no problems.
The choices you have are endless with blanks showcasing natural bark for edging, to shaped plaques and cutouts in all shapes and sizes for celebration holidays or plain circles and squares and rectangles.
The world of wood craft blanks is endless.
Gourd crafts are gaining in popularity amongst pyrographers and crafters alike.
Many artists combine the art of wood burning, carving and painting to create the most stunning artwork pieces.
They are a little tricky to work with as their shape is so variable and contoured – but very rewarding.
Again – no applied finishes before burning.
Ready Made Pyrography Blanks
Finding ready made blanks should not be difficult from any craft store. You will find spoons, trays, boxes, key rings and so much more.
Just be aware of what they are made from and that they are untreated.
These are perfect for gifts, useful items round the house and decorative features on any walls.
Leather for Wood Burning
As with all the above, the same applies to leather.
No finishes and be careful of the smell – good ventilation is a necessity.
Linen Paper for Wood Burning
You will require a heavy duty paper to burn on. A linen paper by Strathmore is a good option. They are available in pads of up to 20 sheets.
Be very careful using this medium.
Building the colors up slowly is a must. Do not burn to dark too soon as you may end up with a hole!
