‘No Vacancy’ Bird House Low Relief with Woodburning Details by Lora Irish
Using a woodburning tool, you can add fine details to low relief carvings. Because I worked this carving on a small round-top plaque, I chose to use a woodburning tool to add in the texture and detail lines instead of a V-gouge. This kept the texture and detail lines as fine as possible. – Lora Irish
