Woodburning House and Trees

wood burning houseMy first period class wanted to do some wood burning. I picked up some things at Hobby Lobby and set them all up with burners. It’s kinda funny. In the art room you have to move everyone toward a plug-in and you can’t have too many on one plug or it will blow the breakers.  I decided to make something so they could see how much detail they needed to put into items. One of the main things about wood burning is repeated patterns and all over designs.  I did a house and two tress. I used a tongue depressor or the base. These are  small shadow sculptures that sit on windows and when the sun is right you can see the shadow of the shapes. This one was fun to make.watercolors 003
