This is my first wood burning / pyrography piece. I think it is birch plywood. It is of a shar pei puppy..
I wasn’t going to post it, but my wife really liked it and told me I should, so here it is :)

Your wife is 100% right—I like it too! Also, it looks very impressive for your first pyro piece. Thanks for posting.

Yep. I agree as well. Quite a subject to tackle with that many wrinkles ;). You definitely pulled it off. Nice work.

That is a fantastic job. First time burning and it looks great. How do you start, free hand drawing or from a picture?

That’s nuts. My wife can draw and knows how to shade. She just does it. I’d end up finishing with a fire extinguisher. I wonder if that foam can be buffed out?
