Boxes, Boxes, Who’s got the Boxes?

I drew the design mostly in pencil, then used a soldering iron to burn the image. I will stain when I do the sides in another project.

To get an idea what it will look like stained, I uploaded into GIMP and colored.

Wood-burning and leather-burning are something I have always liked and wanted to do more of. Lacking an actual wood burning tool, I used a cheap soldering iron I had to burn the design into the box ( see right), top only. I wanted to see what it will look like stained, so I uploaded into GIMP. I like it. I will stain it as part of another day’s project, when I do the sides I think. The soldering iron’s single tip took a bit of getting used to and practice to get the strength, depth, thickness, and tone I wanted in each line.

I really like the combination of working by hand and computer for some things. I think I may do a version of the recent pieces in my art programs as well.

On a side note, I used my metallic paint to continue the painting I started the other day. It really is becoming a long term project.

Metallic paint going on, hat is now purple, cards are white. Most other things are temporarily covered awaiting the paint and redesign of them.
