Using The Right Pyrography Nibs Is Essential

Pyrography NibsThe nibs are how you create your art and detailing on the material of your choice, whether it is wood, bone, gourds, leather or paper.

There are 2 different wood burning tip types available.

  • Solid Points or Tips
  • Wire Tips

Adding good quality nibs to your wood burning kit will make your ability to create much easier and more enjoyable.

Let’s get creative!

Types of Wood Burner Tips or “Nibs”

Solid Points or Tips

Solid TipsThe 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

 Wood burner pen tips often come in different sizes and often shapes and names will vary depending on the manufacturer of your burning tool.

Wire Tips

Wire Tip NibsThese 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.

They also come in a 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.

  • Spoon points
  • Feathering points
  • Powerpoints
  • Skew tips
  • Spear tips
  • Knife tips
  • Groove tips
  • Writing tips
  • Ball Stylus tips
  • Chisel shaders
  • Bead Makers
  • Stamping Tips

The list is comprehensive!
