Pyrography Plaque Wood Blanks

Wood BlanksMost 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 artists, 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.

Natural Plaques

Natural plaques are very popular as they provide a lovely rustic look to your art work. Most of this style of plaque comes with the bark still intact on the edges.

Shaped Plaques

Shaped plaques have been cut out into a wide variety of shapes and sizes. These include plain circles, squares, rectangles and anything else.

The world of wood craft blanks is endless.
