Map, Waterdeep Topography

Posted by Fallon Foster on

After the headache that was my first attempt at a topographical map of the City of Splendors I wasn't exactly eager to take another swing at it.  But after investing all that time and material I'd rather have something to show for it rather than a "Don't Do This" lesson.  It took about a day to rejigger the files and drafts to work with the plywood and I scaled the map down a touch to reduce the number of segments I'd working with.  And I'm glad I went through the trouble because the result is excellent!I fixed the whole thing on a 1x2' piece...

I do enjoy some pyrography from time to time and it's been ages since I last picked up my "burny pen".  Almost a year even, since I made the Derpy Dragon.  In a couple of days my wife and I are flying to Europe for a big vacation.  We'll be visiting some family friends in Britain, Wales, and the Netherlands before swinging through my old stomping grounds in Germany.  It's going to be a whirlwind of a trip and we've been looking forward to it.  One of the places we'll be visiting is a tiny church in Wales where some...

The burning itself went just fine.  Four hours of careful attention and all I had left were the eyes.  So naturally...

Theraputic Pyrography

Posted by Fallon Foster on

I can't speak for anyone else but personally I find woodburning to be pretty relaxing.  Spending 3-8 hours hunched over a piece of linden, focusing on precisely creating details in the wood grain with a hot stick.  Add a good audio book or some interesting podcasts and it's a pretty dandy way to spend the day. Starting a business, even a small one, involves a certain amount of stress so it was pretty nice to be able to sit down and focus on these for a few days. These two rounds were burned with patterns I'd purchased long ago from...
