I've found a new toy! Oh, alright. I bought a new toy. I bought a wood burning tool! And it rocks!
Straight away when I got it home, I began burning things. How much fun is that, bringing a tool home and burning things with it immediately? Much fun. I started with a rolling pin, then realized that starting out with wood and a curved surface was the ultimate in foolishness. Better to start by practicing on cork. I'd show you my practice piece, but it's the artwork for a gift for someone who reads here.
What I CAN show you is the gift I've already given to a different friend! Check it out:
Cool, huh? Here they are one at a time - Pig:
And Pig Won't:
I'm sure at least half of you recognize Richard Scarry's illustrations. I squishy heart Richard Scarry and always have. He rocks.
So does my wood burning toy! I mean, tool. Heh.
Until I write again ...
P.S. And my friend loved the coasters, BTW. She collects pigs.
