Pyrography of a Native American with his beloved friend, his Appaloosa - timber is Silky Oak EKKA All breeds horse expo Brisbane Queensland Australia

The silver looking portion on the left hand side of the above photo is on the timber, 

though not quite as pronounced as on this photo. 

WJ Brother in Arms - also known as Arnie, was inducted in the Australian Appaloosa Hall of Fame in 2015 - he is almost 26 years old and in good health.

I used a scalpel blade to 'etch' away the surface to get the white of the feathers, fur and beads etc.

A needle nosed solid point was used for the bridle, as the actual bridle is made of beads 


Silky Oak is a highly grained timber, but soft enough to be able to carve as I burned to form the bark, the details in the feathers and to give the impression of a rough surface to the underside of the 'leather' pinned to a 'tree'.
