Types of Pyrography Nibs or “Tips”
Solid Points or Tips
The solid interchangeable tips are made from brass and screw into the front end of the burner.
The most used solid brass tip is called a universal tip and can be used for both fine line work and shading work.
Solid points are a great starting point for beginners to get the hang of how the wood burning tool works, how hot it gets, get control and mastery of techniques and generally get comfortable with the tools.
Moving on to the more intricate wire tips will then be easier to master.
Other common solid tips available are:
- calligraphy tip – for lettering
- flow tip – for large area fills
- cone tip – for detailing
- large shading tip – for adding shadows
Tips often come in different sizes and often shapes and names will vary depending on the manufacturer of your burning tool.
These tips are perfect for shading, writing and fine detailing in your artwork.
They are made from high quality nichrome wire.
The wire tips work very well on light colored leather, light wood, cork, gourds and thick paper.
These tips come in wide variety of sizes and shapes.
You may have to practice a little with the different effects each nib creates and also get used to the pressure required. They are much more delicate than the brass solid tip points.
