If you’re unfamiliar about where to start after getting your wood burning tools then try to just focus on starting something to get you familiar with your tools.
If you already have a wood burning tool then the only thing left for you to gather is some inspiration. Here are some wood burning designs that are great pyrography patterns to begin with (some of these examples are first time attempts at wood burning!).
Animals are very popular to do and are surprisingly simple wood carving ideas once you get the texture of their fur, feather, scales, etc. right.
Start off small, analyze what could be improved, then find out how to do it better.
See how the owl example above doesn’t have any realistic details on its feathers but, aesthetically, looks good? Great idea.
Favorite Movie or TV Show
What better wood burning designs to try than characters from your favorite film or tv show!
Breaking Bad was no doubt incredible, but I think the Boba Fett option is too good not to try out.
I love how some of the best wood burning ideas are pieces with lots of detail. Much like these next couple pyrography patterns.
Sugar skulls are fun wood burning designs to try out. The amount of decoration and attention to details is pretty satisfying see come to life in the wood.
The crazier wood burning ideas you have, the better. Starting to think there’s nothing you can’t draw. I love that wood is so versatile when it comes to shading, makes things 100X easier.
I’ve never had a pyrography pattern quite like this. Very cool idea, especially with those coasters!
Here is a great example of where consistent practice will get you. The amount of shade that has been put into these pieces is astonishing, but shade is a woodburning tool’s strong point and is ultimately how it is able to create images.
