Wood burned Cedar Heart- Spiral Zentangle with a Hint of Color One of a Kind

One of Katrina's small, fit-in-your-hand hearts with a Spiral Zentangle/Doodle design wood burned onto it and then oiled with the clear Danish Oil. After drying, a light coat of iridescent inks was used to add a hint of color.  When dried, the painted area was hit with a light coat of spray varnish to protect the paint. 

I (Katrina) started my scroll saw training by cutting these little freehand hearts shapes out of Coop's scraps (OY! The scraps he has!) This way, it wasn't critical if I went outside of the line the way it would be if (after spending an hour or so) he drew me up one of his compass and ruler designs, with absolute precision, and I just wandered my way around the lines.... I like doing the burnings on the hearts because it is more relaxed then on some of the intense pieces. It has also allowed me to practice "how-to's", for example, when I was doing my Autumn GreenMan, I did a heart with eyes on it.  I was able to try a few different techniques (one was a human eye, one was more dragon) so I knew what I was doing (relatively...) when I started working on the Greenman.  

The pictures you see here are stock photos. What you get will depend on what we have in stock. If there are no others in stock, the time to shipping will be increased. If you desire and request something (for example) dark, we will pull the darkest board we have, but it will not necessarily be as dark as (for example) walnut would be. Western Red Cedar is the species from which roofing shingles, decks, and gazeboes have traditionally been made. It is resistant to mold, moisture, and insects. The oiling process also helps to block out damaging UV rays of the sun, so our carvings can be hung outdoors. Please be aware, that even with the oiling, the carving will eventually gray out, as any cedar will, if it is placed in direct sunlight.

 SIZE OF THE CARVINGS: The stock carvings are limited by the size of the board that starts the carving process. As the initial piece is 1 in. x 12 in., (in reality 3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in.) one side of the carving will be no greater then approximately 11-1/2 in.
