This pyrography work called 'Eager to Learn', has been drawn in graphite pencil directly onto a 3mm thick Hoop Pine Plywood panel 330mm X 420mm and I have commenced burning in the initial line work with the pyrography tool nib that I have shaped and polished from High resistance wire. Hoop Pine, not a true pine, is an Australian timber very soft and also very pale without any open grain or figure. The last two characteristics make it very suitable for pyrography.
