Pyrographic Art: Wise Owl

I continue to experiment and practice with the wood burning kit I purchased a few months ago. The owl above was created on a bamboo cutting board ( I got a set of two for $3 from Amazing Savings) using a combination of techniques:

1. First, I heat transferred the owl image (which I got from Graphics Fairy) on the wood using the technique described here
2. Next, I wood burned the details and shading using various tips. 
3. Finally, I painted additional details (light colored feathers) using acrylic paints. 
The whole project took about three hours and though, I am pleased with the overall effect, I intend to practice more.

Thanks for visiting.
