Schrödinger Pyrography

The image used for this card is Schrödinger by Dr. Digi House of Stamps.

Something a little different from colouring this week.  Time to play with the pyrography iron again and make a picture using Schrödinger by Dr. Digi House of Stamps.  I designed my picture on Illustrator as I find this the easiest program for this type of work.  Once I had the designing done I reversed everything and printed.  Next I sanded down an A4 sheet of plywood I had and placed my reversed image printout in position so I could use acetone to transfer the lines to the wood.  This is such a cool technique and lends itself wonderfully to placing digital images onto wood.  Once the transferring was done I removed my paper and completed the picture.  I am only a very basic pyrography creator and shading is not something I really do, much more just line work so this was a challenge and a half and the opportunity to play with several different tips.  Once I reached a point that I thought I better not do any more (knowing when to stop is pretty hard at times), I then stained the wood with some brown ink diluted with water and then rubbed down with a wet one, this brings out the grain of the wood a bit more.  Hope you like the end result and I bet all you lovely cat owners are having a bit of a laugh over the rules lol
