A Couple More Pyro-graphic Dog Boxes

I completed two more dog boxes using pyrography and fluid acrylic paints.


Not much to say.  the lines are burnt and fluid acrylic paint is used to paint between the lines.  I am amazed that some lines and paint can create an image with expression.

Pyro-graphic, Fluid-Acrylic Dog boxes

Using pyrography and fluid acrylic paints, I created a series of cat boxes and then some dog boxes. The lines burnt were looser than previous works and so the paint took centre stage.  I had worked this year on getting well and thus worked on cat and dog boxes when I could. They are all in the Maggiolly show.

Hopefully others will see the soulfulness in the dogs.

New Pyro Dog Box Series for the December "Yuletide Art Show and Sale"

Our Riverbend Artists group are having a sale at a retail art supplies store, Maggiolly in Orangeville, Ontario for the month of December.  So we have all been busy.

We have  a fabric artist, a painter of rock, 3 jewelry participants, a traditional quilter, two metal sculptures, an oil painter, and my pyro/acrylic works.

This year I worked on the pyro/cat boxes which are in the show and a new pyro/dog series.
Our miniature schnauzer, Sharky, became a pensive fellow in our household a number of years ago.

2013 ☆ ☆ Santa Claus.. Christmas in Snowy Village ☆ ☆ 720HD





Found this and liked the art work involved, despite a Disney ad.

I can't believe it has been such a long time since I have posted.  Life and illness just got in the way.

Corking with Beads -by Manuela

Once she has mastered one technique and pushed it where she wants it to go Manuela starts another.  Now she is corking to produce straps for her purses.  but, today, she added beads into the mix.

As you can see, she has one thread strung with many beads and as she corks she manoeuvres the beads to become embedded evenly throughout the cord.

And she can do this while watching tv. Me, I can hardly watch tv.



String the beads loosely onto the thread.
Determine the spacing of the beads as you cork.
