19 Dec Pyrography meets Typography
DIY-Project: wood sign | wall art
All you need for this simple DIY Project is a piece of wood and a wood burning pen (Pyrography pen). And the most important :-) –> Be creative when thinking about fonts and typography.
Here is a little tutorial on how I make a wood sign:
- A piece of wood
- Tracing paper for your “quote” & pencil
- Pyrography pen
- Choose the right font
- Some cosiness :-)
Before using the Pyrography pen, sand your wood.
Maybe you should also get several pieces of practice wood before starting with your design. When choosing a font or typography, take care of the contrast between the letterforms and the wood texture.
After two hours (maybe three) of cosy work, you will come to this result: your own hand crafted wood sign.
