Following on from the 'take one motif & repeat' & knowing what we are doing tomorrow, I decided to make my stamp IN RELIEF, this is the negative of the design. Dales is the positive - the actual design is raised- my design is incised. I chose a 3 inch square piece of balsa wood & used one of my eight (yep how did THAT happen) pyrography pens or now called a soldering iron. I actually call it a SIRON.
I used a fine tip but not as fine as for working on fabric
The wood grain resembles the actual wood on my chair
