Another exciting announcement dear readers! The timing has been perfect as usual! My secret project is laid out on the basswood and ready to burn. I plan on beginning burning it today and taking pictures along the way. Unfortunately you wont see the pictures posted here until the middle of May. My Optima burner came early allowing me to get started as soon as possible. And do I need every spare moment to work on it.
But the more exciting news! I have been granted permission to burn "The Halo Picture" for one year's time. Since October of last year the plans for this portrait have sat sketched out on a piece of basswood, awaiting that important letter to arrive in the mail. I thought it would never come but I'm glad it came when it did because... it came just three days after I recieved the professional iron needed to burn such an important portrait.
Had it come earlier I might have attempted it with that sorry Walnut Hollow craft iron and ruined it entirely!
Thankyou for coming and check back soon as I will have updates on both projects as they come along.
Please remember to comment and follow if you aren't already!
