This is on an 11×14 piece of birch plywood. Burned with a Detail Master using a medium rounded skew.

I have been doing several pictures like this one for a realtor. He gives them to the families that he sells homes to as a gift for using him as their realtor.

I assume it is a good likeness, Mel, because the faces are so lifelike they almost jump off the screen.

Great work. Does your burner produce a pattern? What system is your burner?

I really like this image.

thanks

This is one of the nicest pyrography pieces I’ve seen. The faces are very realistic and I really like the brickwork. Great job!
