Pyrography Mountain Landscape on Wood

2 Materials
3 Hours

Imagine you’re in the Alps with a mountain landscape in your living room! Use the wood burning tool and accompanying attachments to burn the most beautiful panorama onto a wooden background. The decorated wooden tree is ideal as a decoration on your window sill or as a handmade, personal gift.

Step 1

Sketch your design onto paper first.

Step 2

Lightly sand the tree to smooth out the grain.

Step 3

Draw your design onto the wooden tree in pencil.

Step 4

Use the thickest attachment for the thick lines. We’ll be drawing the contours of the mountains, the trees in the foreground and the log cabin with it.

Step 5

Swap the attachment for the long, narrow tip. Refer to the wood burning tool user manual to ensure that you do this safely. We’ll use the narrow attachment to draw details in the mountains and log cabin. We’ll also draw the sun and smoke coming out of the chimney.

Step 6

Now take the angled attachment. This is ideal for drawing shadows in the mountains and hills. We’ll also shade in the sun with it.

Step 7

Next, use the narrow, small attachment to draw the trees and branches.

Step 8

Screw the flat attachment onto the wood burning tool to shade in the hills and sun some more.

Step 9

Draw the remaining branches and other details to your own taste using the appropriate attachment.

Step 10

Finally, we’ll apply some more shadow to the trees and log cabin using the flat attachment. This will make the colours of the neutral and burnt wood flow together better.
