Wood Burning Art

This is a Rainbow Trout that I drew and then used a wood burning tool to draw it into the wood .I also used some color pencils to get the rainbow color look, then I used my Dad's large wood burning tool to get the darker burn around the outside and edge of the wood . I sealed it with clear coat.

 I made this and many others about 15 years ago,
This one had been hanging up at my son's house it fell and cracked , if you look closer you can see where it is ,but it also looks like part of the water. I put wood glue in it and it is good as new. 
I will take pictures of any other wood art and post them later. 


  1. Your artwork is really quite nice. I have a piece of wood that is unstained so I am wondering if I should stain it first and then use my wood-burning tool? Or are you supposed to burn it first and then stain it? Or does it not matter?

  2. Hi , I did re-ply to the e-mail .not sure you got it .So I will repeat what I did tell you, is that I always do the wood burning first and then Stain it or just seal it with a clear shallac. Good Luck with your work and I would like to see it if there is a way.

  3. OK, it may take a few weeks for me to do everything I want to do on my budget but I will see if I can upload some pics. Thanks for the advice.
