Just wanted to let everyone know I wa still alive and kickin. On the tip side of Burning, It depends alot on the temprature of the wood on what color you burning will come out. The warmwer the wood thew better you can control your color.

Jim; You have been busy and it shows in the great pieces you created. Do you make these freehand or from a sketch? When I made a couple of burning’s, I traced the picture on the wood with carbon paper to give me some guide lines to follow. I never thought the wood temperature changed the color.

I didn’t think it would matter either but when I left the wood out in the cold I got more of a brownish-tan tone, but when the wood was warm I got the grayish – black tone. A little more work if the wood is cold. I do it the same way most of the time, except I now use graphite paper for my copying. the when it comes to the different shade or tone then that is by the eye.
