Image Transfer & Using a Wood Burning Tool

4 Materials
15 Minutes
Today I'll be sharing 2 things - how to transfer an image onto a surface and how to use a wood burning tool. Both are so easy to use and the possibilities are endless once you give it a try!

I purchased my Creative Vera Tool from Amazon.  It comes with many tips for different kinds of wood burning as well as some other tools.
Let's start with making your transfer.  Print out a design, words, or monogram on a regular piece of paper.
On the back side of the paper rub a pencil and cover the whole design with the graphite.
Flip the design over, place it on your piece (I'm using a cutting board) and you might want to tape it in place.  Trace around your design or lettering.
It's a little hard to see but if you look close you'll see the graphite transferred onto the cutting board.  Go here to watch a video of this image transfer -
Now it's time to use your Creative Versa Tool.  Put your desired tip into the tool, I turned mine on to the red area for heating.  Once it was heated and ready to go, you rub the hot tip onto the wood to burn in your design.  It was really easy to use.  A tip - this cutting board had a waxy covering on it and I had to burn through it before getting to the wood.  I recommend sanding anything that has a coating on it, or start with a raw piece of wood.
It was super easy to use and now my mind is spinning with all the possibilities!  What amazing gifts you can make with this tool!

    I will definitely try this image transfer method and since I recently bought a wood burning kit similar to the one you used, I will also try wood burning. Thanks for the DIY and inspiration!
