Woodburning, Adobe

Here’s a wood burning I did a little while a go. And I decided it was done. What do you think?

I like it a lot. It must take a very delicate touch and it shows through. I certainly seems to be finished.

Bob, it's not as much the touch as it's how hot is your tool tip. Even with a very soft touch if the tip is very hot it will burn! So you need to control the temperature (1 to 10) and adjust accordingly to your speed making a mark (a slow motion will burn more than a fast one) and your speed in between marks as well (the longer you wait for the next mark the hotter the tip gets).
