Just wow, I've started dabbling in wood burning, but just wow, how do you get such a soft light burn? is it a certain nib? like the light shading on the beak, any pointers?

Thank you! =D Thanks for watching also! =) 
Yes, I use certain tips. About a 1/4 inch wide flat tip that I set to a low temperature to make a smooth shade. Have to keep the pen in motion to not burn one area too much also. It also helps to sand the wood smooth before burning to make the burn go smoothly also. If you haven't checked it out yet, here's my Youtube channel with some videos: www.youtube.com/channel/UCuOmu…

Yea I use a flat tip. But mine doesn't have temp control arg nightmare. One heat. Fkn hot... lol thanks I'll watch the vids. I never thought to come on here to look for others working with wood. It's great to find others. :)
Yea I sand my wood. I Bought a band sander lol tried normal sanding gave up after 3 hours of getting no where!

Yeah, it helps a lot to have temperature control. Haha. I started out with a basic burner with one set temperature though. I just used a small fan to cool it down. The last page in my woodburning section of my gallery on here were made using a pen like that: brandojones.deviantart.com/gal…

I was going to say that you should get some basswood, but I saw that you live in New Zealand, so it's probably not easy to get it there. =P Along with the pens I have (Razertip brand which is located in Canada).

Hope I am not asking a question that was already answered but I am curious. How long did it take you to get this much detail?
The best I could guess would be at least 3 hours. How close am I XD?!   >.<

This one took around 7 hours to make. Woodburning is a pretty slow form of art. haha.

Yerp. I also...just...really like birds. I love the eagle burning you did, and also any and all of your people-portraits. (Drawing people is tough enough...let alone doing a portrait in pyrography!)

Cool =D Yeah... feathers are a little tricky. Can't exactly do them fast either. =P And then people.... that's a slow process also. Well, woodburning in general I guess is slow. Haha
Thanks =)

I use a Detail Master brand burning tool. Here's a couple of the tips I use with it: lh4.googleusercontent.com/-HWS…

Ohm, cool stuff, I always wondered about the fine gradients.
Did you ever tried to burn on cherry wood? I used that for my first two woodburnings/carvings, but its a difficult work..

:iconbrandojones:
brandojones Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
The temperature control on the woodburner helps a lot for that. It takes a lot of practice though.
I haven't personally tried cherry wood yet. I think that may be too hard. I use basswood (there's other names for it in other countries). I like it because it's soft and smooth and doesn't have a lot of grain in the wood. I sand it before also so I can get the best smoothness I can while burning it.

Ahh okay, basswood...russians take birch plates for wood burning, likewise a stem cross section, it's a kind of traditional russian pyrograph, like this one
