  2. if youGreat to see that woodprix has new instructions to save my money and energy to build it.

  3. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS VIDEO. i LEARNED MORE WATCHING THIS VIDEO THAN THE OTHERS. DON'T STOP.

  4. I think this is fake. I believe that image is already on the board. she keeps that side away from the camera when applying the paper, also the paper would scorch when applying the transfer tip.

  5. Hobby lobby carries a good burner with temperature control and multiple tips (including transfer tip) for around $30.

  6. They are more expensive however you can buy pyrography  systems with a thermostat that allows you to adjust the pen tip temperature from 400 degrees Celsius up to 750 degrees Celsius. Optimum temperature is around 600. The advantage is that you can apply shading to  your design by running the pen colder at say 550 degrees Celsius. (still hot even though it may not be glowing)Two ideas for extending the life of the tips is firstly, never run it super hot if you can help  it. Around 700 degrees Celsius. You are not using the pen for lighting or at least you should not be. Move the pen slower if you need to.Second is that as the pen is used, the tip will develop a very thin layer of carbon which acts as a thermal insulator. When this  happens, turn the pen off and leave to go cold. Then very lightly run wire wool over the blade being careful not to bend the blade out of shape. The silvery colour should appear after about a minute and you should be able to use the tip to its original characteristics.Where I work, the blades would usually last about 2 weeks. Using the careful cleaning method, I have one blade still running after about 3 months.Take this as a number of suggestions if you wish. I leave the rest to you.

  7. I'm new to this Art, can anyone tell me what these tools are called? And this whole process is called Pyrography correct?
