Pineapple Wood Burning

Hi there everyone! I've been in a wood burning mood lately, and thought what better subject than a delicious pineapple!

Wooden Plaque
Wood Burning Tool

Optional supplies:
A picture to go off of
A pencil to draw on your plaque

I found a black and white picture that I loved online and with my pencil drew it onto my wooden plaque. If your drawing skills aren't the best, then you can print out the picture you want to use. Make sure you have it fit to the size of your plaque. Cover the back of your print out with graphite from a pencil, and tape down your picture into place. Trace all of the black areas on your image, then peel away. 

Plug your tool in and let it heat up so that it will actually make marks in the wood. Follow your drawn guide lines. The longer you leave your wood burning tool down on the wood, the darker that area will get. Make sure to take your time and don't try to rush it! Have fun!!
