Remoddeling the retreat entrance.

   Posted by: MotherWillow   in Dragonwoods

Those big doors are getting taken off and replaced with two doors with windows and a window over the doors. To let light in and make the retreat entrance look good. We will be burning on the doors turning them into works of art. Hope you follow us and watch the magic happen !


New pictures

Just putting up some new picture that our daughter did. She is getting good.

She made these for her and her daughters.



From start to finish.

The fist step is selection of the wood. For these kind of pictures I like to order the 12 inch pine disk. Then I sand it to make it extra smooth. That makes my burn much easier to control. Then I put the picture outline on with pencil. From there, it’s all burning. My pictures didn’t load in the right order, however, you can get the idea. This one, the person I made it for didn’t want it framed, he wanted to finish it off himself. That’s great! I like doing things for people that want to use my pictures in other things.

This one was made for a lady who wanted something on the top of her marble box.

Gourds are fun too, they are also good rhythm interments as well.

I don’t do tracing on my gourds, it’s all free hand. I am doing more free hand work as I get better at drawing what I want.
