Buddhist-Bernie plaque

The image used for this pyrography plaque is Buddhist-Bernie by Dr. Digi House of Stamps.

Playing around with a bit of pyrography is a bit of fun, nice and relaxing and not thinking about colour combinations makes a change lol.  The digital image was placed into Illustrator and from there I added the text and corners.  This was then printed onto tracing paper (in reverse) and transferred to the wood plaque I used using high strength acetone and a spoon - small areas are wet using a paint brush and the acetone and then rubbed with the back of the spoon to copy the image onto the wood.  To finish off I wood stained the plaque using inks watered down.

I did find this rather challenge as I made the image large to hold centre stage on the plaque and as I am very much a dabbler in pyrography trying to get the material effects and shading but keeping the clothing, cushion and Buddha areas distinctive was a real bit of trial and error.  Saying that, I do like the way he turned out :).
