A while ago I ask you to come up with new ideas for me to use my talent. One of you said to try nature, tree’s animals, then someone said Turkeys, OK I spent two days looking for the right picture. Then three days to come the stage I am now, I will try and go through each stage. and show how I come up t it. Stage one, looking for the right picture;

Stage two was putting the pattern onto wood;

and the third stage is doing the burning itself. I found a process which is, outlining the picture with white pencil, it really helps out on the picture itself.

Now comes the forth and fifth stage. I try and get my burnings done before I go through and make each frame.

then finish it off with the poly and lacquered.. I have one more picture to do then I can start on making the frames.
