Leather Burned Cuffs
May 28, 2013
Yesterday I was catching up on some blog reading and I came across some fabulous jewelry by talented illustrator Gennine Zlatkis. She used a pyrograph to burn designs into a leather cuff and a leather ring. I ran to my art studio immediately!
I had a wood burning tool and some blank leather cuffs just sitting around. Clearly, this was fate! So, I got to work:
Working with a wood burning tool is easy. You hold it just like a pencil. You have to go slowly and there is a bit of a smell from the burning leather. But with a bit of time and patience, you get something lovely!
Have you ever felt so inspired by a blog post that you had to run out and give it a try right away? I'm definitely glad that I had everything on hand. (A good excuse to keep stuffing my studio full of stuff, right?!)
Thanks for stopping by!
