New person.

Hi, I'm new to the group, and I thought I'd introduce myself by showing a piece or two I've done in the semi-recent past. Unfortunately all the pictures I put up came up as big boxes with X's on them, but hey.

Anyway, my name is Amanda, although on the web I go by either Khira or Shambles. I'm 25 and this is what I do to help relieve stress.

New Member Intro

Now this is a find, a group that enjoys pyrography as I do.  I've been woodburning for about three years now and find that it's addictive.  I hope to share ideas, advice, and experiences with everyone here, not to mention enjoy the beautiful work that is already obvious among the members.

I must admit, I was surprised to find a pyrography group here on LJ... but since I did, I had to join. I'm new to it all, but I am already addicted.

I don't work with photos or images like that yet. I prefer the symbols and flat designs.

Behind the cut are some of the pieces I have done...
some for sale on Etsy, some not...Collapse )

Anyhow, that should be enough for now.... I look forward to chatting and sharing tips/ideas with you guys!

    Hey Folks,  Just found your site and thought I'd drop in and show you a piece of mine. Forgive me if the formatting is wrong. I'm still learning to use the computer. This is a peice of myrtle wood (oregon) that  I purchased at a yard sale and had to spend a few hours resurfacing as someone had left the wood in their rather damp basement (not a place I recommend for wood). The director of our local Gallery Walk like it so much she entered it into our Oshkosh 150 and I then gave it to my Mother for Christmas where it resides proudly in her collection.

Tasha's portrait

About a month or so ago, I FINALLY finished Tasha's portrait. It was mostly done. But, I still had to add the finishing touches. Her name, her birthdate, I used paint to hightlight her eyes, her nose, and the little bit of white on her chin. Then I painted the outer edge, and gave it a clear coat. I like how it turned out. It's really hard to get a good picture with the clear coat. I took several and this was the best. Let me know what you think.
