Pyrographied Charcuterie Board

 Every now and then I make some piece of clothing, mostly for my daughters. The finishing touch for me is to sew on the leather label with my name. I order the custom made labels on line, but find them quite expensive, so I am looking for an alternative for a while now and thought about pyrography. So I ordered a pyrography pen, that arrived yesterday. The only thing I have to find now is inexpensive leather to cut little labels from. To practice a bit, I tried my best on this charcuterie board, that I already had. 

Not that bad, for a first attempt, but I will use another wood variety next time. This board is made of bamboo and I guess pine will do better because of its softer consistency.

  3. Check out Torch Paste. You can use it with your stencils and a heat gun.

  4. If you have a shoe making factory nearby, they sometimes sell bags of off-cuts of leather very cheaply.

  8. Brilliant! I have a tool sitting in a drawer, unused, that I bought on a whim. My son just shared a charcuterie board he prepared and this is perfect inspiration for a customized Christmas gift for him. Never too early right?! Featuring when my party opens!

  10. Hi Liz, I thought I had returned a comment for your charcuterie board but guess I didn't (must have seen your message through WP, instead)... Anyway, I DID feature your post at last week's (#302) Share Your Style for you. I love how this is a new technique for wood burning!!

    Enjoy your pretty new board,
    Hugs,
    Barb :)
