I can barely remember how to spell it but I have had a go at this craft and intend to keep trying.
|Chines Dragon box|
Later for a Christmas gift, I received a somewhat more basic tool. It came with different tips, has no temperature control other than turning it off to let it cool or leaving it on to get very hot.
I have used it to burn the names of baking competition winners into wooden spoons (to commemorate their win) and to do simple flowers onto wooden jewellery.

My best effort to date is adding dragons and the recipients initial onto this wooden box containing Chinese iron balls.
The are great for relaxing and strengthening hands tired from crafting..the iron balls with tinkling bells inside them, not the pyrography tools, just to be clear. They, the instruction sheet carefully informs me are not recommended for use on human skin..ouch! I shall be careful to avoid confirming that instruction.
