Pyrography woodburning Hilltop Home pyro-carved tree Moreton Bay Fig timber house with verandah overlooking a valley timber art craft unique gift, QLD, NSW, New south wales, Victoria, Tasmania

Carved Tree:      Pyro-carving solid pyrography nib

Fig Tree (trunk & large branches), the Valley, Clouds & shading on the House: Universal Shading nib - which is spoon shaped to be able to do all shading, as well as the lines on the tin roof, with the edge of the nib.

Ground around the Fig Tree roots: 4mm wide ball point nib - by using a 'squiggle' action it eventually gave the look of the roughened bare ground seen around these trees.

Leaves of the Fig Tree: The edge of the Universal (shading) tip

Thin branches (that have the leaves): a knife edged nib (the same nib that is used for the manes on horses and the hair on the Old Man Lion)

House poles and timber exterior: the Pyro-carve nib and the Universal Shader

Grass: the fine sharp edge of the pyro-carve nib

I had pyro-carved the tree (burnt and carved the timber with a solid pyrography nib) for a previous project. However, the first burning was 'flat' to look at, it did not give the impression of a round tree. 

So this time I shaped the edge of the timber in a curve down to the edge and started again. The overall shape of the timber piece is how I received it, I did not add the bottom curve. It's nice to have a picture that is not the standard shape.

The grass is done with the edge if the pyro-carve nib, which has a very sharp edge, thus allowing for the thin blades of grass to be shown.

This is a composite picture with many different elements to form each part of the picture. The carved tree is total imagination. The Moreton Bay Fig has different shapes from different trees. The house is a combination of different buildings and the background is the valley near the Blue Mountains.

So you don't have to get the perfect photo with all the elements....collect many photos and put in the favourite parts of those scenes...as well as a healthy portion of imagination :-)
