Butterfly Dreams Pyrography Tutorial wood burning art

This is just a quick notification that the tutorial I wrote called Butterfly Dreams is now available on Kit Kraft’s website.  The tutorial features a multitude of butterflies flitting around the board.  I embellished the butterflies using colored pencils, Pearl Ex pigments, and some rhinestones.  I went all-out in the glitz department!

Butterfly Dreams pattern     Unfortunately, Kit Kraft is having a slight issue with the format I put the pattern in, so while we work to resolve that I’ve been authorized to put the pattern on this site.

I burned the artwork onto a piece of basswood they stock in their store.  I’d have to admit I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the board.  I used a 3/8” thick board and I wouldn’t recommend using anything thinner.  The reason is that thinner boards are more susceptible to warping and curling.

I thought the artwork turned out rather nicely and I love the bright sparkly colors.  Heck, just the pyrography portion looks great.  I hope you’ll read the tutorial and let me know what you think about it.

The artwork measures 4 x 12 inches (10.2 x 30.5 cm) and took me 6 ¼ hours to create it including all of the embellishments.
