Wood burning is a great craft that anyone can do as long as you can trace lines. And, of course, you have to be careful about the hot wood burning tool. But otherwise, it gives you great, professional looking result with little effort. In fact, slowly tracing your design is very meditative since you have to concentrate on each line and burning the wood just so.

When using a woodburing tool, be careful because the can get really hot. I like this woodburning tool where you can select between different temperatures. It also comes with a nice assortment of tips and stencils so you work on lots of different projects and just keep on creating. Just make sure to keep it away from small children and let everyone know that it can be very hot.

Woodburning Poppy Sign Tutorial:
First, you to decide on a nice wooden sign and print out the line drawing of the field of poppies to fit on the sign. You can freehand draw the design or use transfer paper to trace it only the wood sign. The transfer paper is included with this woodburing tool set, but if you already have a wood burning tool, you can get this transfer paper.
Then it is time to heat up your wood burning tool to about 400 degrees or whatever is recommended by your wood sign and woodburing tool. Use the thinnest tip and wait until it is nice and hot before you start gently tracing your design. You have to move slowly but smoothly along the lines to give it time to burn the wood. So it is a lot slower than drawing.
After you initially traced your entire poppy flowers design, go over anything that is too light. you can also add a bit of shading by adding dots in some areas and thicken up stems and connection points. It looks nicer if those are darker than the rest.
Now all that is left is to hang you Spring Flower Sign in a prominent place to enjoy for the season..
