Fall Cardinal Scene Wood Burning Pattern
This vivid pyrography project proves that autumn is the perfect season to burn
I have two bird feeders on my patio that I fill with black oil sunflower seeds—which cardinals love! I based this project on the female cardinal, who is not quite as showy as her bright red mate, but just as beautiful. This autumn wood burning project features bright leaves and berries swirling gracefully around this feisty bird. Download your free wood burning pattern of this adorable cardinal below.
Before you start to burn, set up an exhaust fan near your work area to draw the smoke away from you. Sand the surface of the wood, photocopy the wood burning designs and transfer it onto the wood using graphite paper. Periodically, during the wood burning art session, clean your tips. For this pyrography project, you will need a shading nib, a writing nib, and a mini tight round nib. Sometimes I add a touch of color with artist-quality watercolor paints, but for a more old-fashioned look, you can leave the piece unpainted and brush on an oil finish.
