Pyrography Thunderbird Dancer Mask Tribal wood burning art

Hi. Welcome to Pyrography Made Easy. I’m Brenda and in this episode you’re going to watch the artwork be created for the
Thunderbird Tribal Dancer mask The mask was based on a carving done by Donald Varnell I hope you enjoy watching it. So as I mentioned before my artwork was based on a carving done by Donald Varnell. I saw his mask at the Tribal Heritage Center in Ketchikan Alaska. It was amazing. I mean my artwork does not do his carving justice at all. If you ever in the area I really highly
recommend going and seeing it. That mask must have been five or six feet long. I don’t even know if you could actually wear it. I mean it was rather larger. Anyway the mask my artwork was burned on a basswood and it took me seven and a half hours to
complete it. I use a Colwood Super Pro II and my website: has blogs, tutorials, and free downloadable patterns that you can do. so check it out anytime. Well thank you again for watching my video and please subscribe

    Great video Brenda! 😁 The mask came out great. I have to ask, while burning your darks with the colwood, doesn't the pen get hot for you. Jason & I were both using my colwood today & even at 3 the pen gets hot at the cork. I was just wondering if you have this issue. I guess I have gotten spoiled with my optima… Lol 😆

    Hi Brenda. I liked this tutorial because of the uniform black background, it also made the dance mask pop up from the background. The mask also needs a steady hand because of the detail. Also love the theme. Thank you.
