Finally got to use my tool....my wood burned Mermaid Miranda...



I finally got to try out my new tool on a special wooden box....I made a mermaid and burnt the design into the wood...

On the weekend I think I might try to do some colour wash over it to experiment further...

Hope you al have a great weekend!

Cheers,

Diana

I love your box! I can't believe it's your first time with this medium. She is a beautiful mermaid. I love your idea too to put things you are thankful for in it. Have a great year!

This sounds like a lot of fun. It has to be perfect the first time since you cannot erase it. Very cool.
