Welcome to Marsha’s Gallery.
Pyrography, from the Latin fire and writing, is the technique of making art on a surface with heated metal. I use mainly photographs to create my art on wood, paper, and leather. I use the wood burning pen much like a pencil or stick of charcoal to draw with heat. Images with strong lines, dramatic shadows, or intense texture work well with this toasting medium. Variations in color are achieved by keeping the heated tip longer in one place for darker tones and moving it faster for lighter shades.
