Join us on a creative adventure with wood and fire (or rather heat, but you get the idea)! This time around, we're diving into the world of pyrography, but with a twist. Here's a little video on how a simple turtle design found its way burned into wood, using an EZScreen stencil and some clever torch paste magic.

The Low Down:

Starting with the basics, a repositionable spray helped to secure the stencil firmly onto the wood. While the spray isn't super necessary if you have smaller designs, it helps A LOT in making sure that you don't accidentally lift the stencil while you're squeegee-ing.

I used a plastic spoon to scoop the Torch Paste onto my stencil, and then started squeegee-ing my heart out! Slow and steady wins the race; you don't want the torch paste where it shouldn't be. So, a careful application with a squeegee is crucial.

Next, gently peel off the stencil, and then grab the heat gun! The heat gun (a hot hair dryer may work as well?) is the wand that brings the piece to life, making the torch paste transform into a stunning burnt image right before your eyes. Remember, ventilation is your friend during this part; safety always comes first.

This isn't just about creating something pretty; it's about the thrill of trying something new, of finding beauty in simplicity, and the joy of sharing it with you. What are your thoughts on this wood-burning technique? Would you give it a try? Let's start a conversation and share our experiences with this enchanting craft!
