Pyrography mistakes. Ever made one?
The wood may never forgive you.
But one of these little tools (and possibly some sandpaper) can change all that.
I’ve used razors and small knives to scrape off dark burns and make them lighter, or even just to add texture to my piece by bringing the natural wood back to the surface.
Now for the most severe tool – the chisel.
“But Jannie, a chisel sounds so… serious.”
Yep. Serious business. For serious mistakes.
I once signed a piece in a place that I really regretted. After about 2 days of moping over ruining my beautiful art piece, I decided to fix it.
The signature was deep and unforgiving. But once I chiseled down deep enough (being extra careful to blend out the dig site), I was able to use my fine 220 grit sandpaper to smooth out the dent and blend in a new burn.
