  2. Wow, I saw your work first on Youtube and then had to come to your website to see more! You are such a talented artist but better yet, you are willing to teach us your techniques and styles. You have a very good voice and demeanor along with a kind, patient understanding which shows through in all your videos. You’ve found what you were meant to do and may the Lord continue to bless you.

    1. Hi Robert,
      Wow, tank you for such a wonderful compliment! I am really enjoying what I do and it’s an added bonus if I can help other improve their skills in the medium. What I also find enjoyable with pyrography is that I continue to learn more about it. I hope that you enjoy creating pyrography art as much as I do. I really is a lot of fun!

  4. Hi sylvia.just been watching your videos on you tube.very lnformative.i have a razertip ss-d10.only just started burning but im addicted to it look at all your tutorials.thank you.mark rowley,south wales uk

    1. Hi Mark,
      Congratulations on joining the pyrography community. I love the artform and it’s exciting to see others get into the medium. I hope that my tutorials will be helpful to you, but more importantly I hope you continue to have a lot of fun with it!


  5. Brenda just Love your work… I have tryied a lot of your tips and they work 👌🏼. Could you make a tutorial about shades and lights please? Also I have a Razertip the started kit but it starts to burn in 7.5 or 8.. is that the temperature that you use? I live in Peru the wood is different and its very hard here..
    thank you for your YouTube videos.. just love them ✍️.. and also for letting use your patterns and learned so much from you 🌟

    1. Hi Silvia,
      thank you very much. I appreciate your very kind words. It’s good to know that my tutorials and videos are helpful.

      As for the heat setting, I keep my burner set closer to 3. At this temperature I get a tan color. I have to re-burn over an area many times to get a darker color. The setting does vary depending on the wood and pen tip you use. For example: basswood = 3, but maple = 3.5 or 3.75

      The pictures I’ve seen of Peru show it to be a very beautiful country. I’ve always wanted to visit and see the Machu Picchu ruins.

      I have a question about your tutorial idea. Are you wanting something very basic that explains how light and shadows work on objects like a ball or a box?


    2. Hi Silvia,
      this is a follow up to your tutorial request. I wanted to let you know that I’m working on a concept to help explain about light and shadows. I’m thinking of making a “back to basics” series, and I’m hoping to get the first one done and posted by the end of October.

  6. So glad I found your website, Brenda!
    Thank you for making these videos so “newbies” like myself can learn this amazing and fun art form.
    I was just practicing your zig zag burst stroke (from the mountain scene video) and having trouble because the pen “sticks” or sinks into the surface. Any suggestions on how I correct this?


    1. Hi Dawn,
      Thank you! I’m glad you’re enjoying pyrography. I love it and I’m having a lot of fun sharing my love of this artform. As for the pen tip sinking, let me say this: Zigzag strokes will sink into the wood more than other types. I have two suggestions to help minimize this: 1) use a light pressure and 2) keep the heat down. Let me explain a little more.

      First the light hand pressure. Using a light pressure will allow the pen tip to glide over the surface of the wood easier. To go along with this, I also recommend keeping a firm but light grip on the pen. Avoid using a “death grips” because it makes a lot tougher to notice how hard you are pressing the tip onto/into the wood. Our goal as pyrographers is to burn the wood, not engrave. 🙂

      Now about the heat. The hotter the pen tip is, the deeper it will sink into the wood. When I burn I keep my temperature set so that I get a tan color burn with my normal hand speed. To darken things up I either re-burn over it or I slow down my hand speed.

      Hopefully one or both of those suggestions will fix your situation. If it doesn’t let me know.

      1. Hi Brenda,

        Just had the opportunity to try your suggestions. Seems like a combination of both have done the trick!
        I also learned from your blog that I need to prep all wood by sanding first. While I didn’t go to the wet sanding stage, I did sand through to 320 grit and the pen felt more like it was sliding this time. Now, I just need to practice the texturing and shapes to get a more natural look.

        Thanks again for your time and help!

  7. I want to thank you for your time and the quality of your videos.
    I’ve watched more than my share of videos on pyrography and was totally lost.
    I came across your videos and watched a few. They are fantastic. I now 1/2 way know what I’m doing.
    Thank you again.

    1. Hi Scotty,
      You are so welcome and thank you. I appreciate your kind words, and I’m so glad to hear that my videos are helpful. Pyrography is such a fun medium to create art in and I love sharing what I do. Knowing others find it helpful makes it more worthwhile. Brenda

    1. Hi Ron,
      You are so welcome and thank you very much for the compliment. Other than being in front of that camera I really enjoy what I do. Pyrography is a very enjoyable hobby to me and I’m glad others enjoy it too. Brenda

I love hearing from you, so leave a comment.
