The spoons are sanded, and ready for the pyrography.
I drew a maple leaf free-hand with a pencil, and then go over my outline with a 10-A handpiece using my Eagle Burnmaster. Once the outline is finished, I use a shading handpiece to darken around the leaf edge.
And here's a finished leaf on the handle.
The two spoons, front and back of the handle.
Two spoons, signed and dated on the back of the scoop.
Several coats of a hand-rubbed oil finish, every twenty-four hours, and ready for delivery!
